Just thought I'd give a quick informational update on what I'm learning/finding out:
Since our vascular ordeal(s) are rare and not many physicans are aware of them, I wanted to know if Dr. Barrow sees people (whom's AVMs have been removed) as his/her neurologist. (I am aware that Dr. Barrow is a neuroSURGEON with an exceptional AVM understanding & treatment reputation; therefore, I wondered if he saw people as his/her neurologist AFTER the AVM is gone or not.) In my quest to find out (b/c I am looking for a GOOOOOOD neurologist now that my neurosurgeon has said that I don't have to come back to him - unless I really needed to), here's what I've done so far:
(*) Called Dr. Barrow's office to ask. (The nice lady in the office is going to call me back with the answer.)
(*) Submitted the question through the "Ask a nurse" section on Emory's website. (The website said response time should be 1 business day, since I'm in the US.)
If anyone knows the answer to this question or has any tips on: (1) how to get Dr. Barrow to be the AVM neuroLOGIST for me since mine was removed by a different neurosurgeon or (2) knowledge of a GREAT neuroLOGIST (knowledgable with AVMs), I'd LOVE to know!
Thank you all, in advance!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!!! (Keep smiling, believing, & loving!!!!!!!) :)
