Now before I posted this I have looked through a lot of old posts/topics about Dr.'s in Chicago/IL however, almost all of them are over a year old. So, even though they were extremely helpful/informative
I thought I’d post this as well
I was hoping to get any experiences/recommendations of dr.'s in Chicago/IL because… the very short version of my situation is- I have an AVM in my right heel and most likely several more and my file was sent to the only two dr.'s in central IL who have had any experience (which wasn’t that much) with AVM’s-and they said they did not feel comfortable operating. Then it was sent to Dr. Yakes but has been denied twice by my insurance because he is out of state. Now were fighting it on the grounds of network deficiency, and I’m praying it will be approved but if it’s not I want to be somewhat ready and find the best option I can in the state of IL. Even though I know already there are very few.
So yeah basically that’s it… just wondering if anyone has had their surgery in Chicago/IL? What was the outcome/complications? Was their anyone you had a positive experience with?
My biggest fear is it being denied-me having to go with a inexperienced Dr. in IL-and them messing up my foot/leg more than it already is
Sorry for the long post but wanted to explain as in depth as I could
Any help/advice is greatly appreciated Thanks
