Communication with Dr.B
by heather

I've been communicating back and forth with Dr.B over the past three weeks by email. Can you believe that one of the best specialist (neurosurgeon for chiari) in the county has time to email patients? I should say 'makes time' since most of the emails I get from him are at about 11pm. Its amazing to me the dedication that he has to his patients!

Dr.B is concerned that I'm still having constant head pain. He thinks that at 7 months post-op from the fusion I should have improvement. He is thinking that there are two possibilities of what is still causing my pain. I won't go into the details until I know more about what his plan is.

Communication with Dr. B

You know, I was thinking the exact same thing about Dr. B. I too received an email from him after 11PM and was so touched by the dedication he must have to his patients. And I haven't even seen him yet..I am scheduled to go down and see him in February. I have been so concerned with things that need to get done before my appointment with him, etc., but just the fact that HE wrote back to me just made me feel so much better..I mean it instilled within me more confidence in a Physician I haven't even met yet. Dr. Bolognese is a very special Doctor in my opinion. I am going to check "No" where it asks Comment Publicly so that spammers do not get ahold of my email address. I do not mind you sharing anything I ever say, just try to protect me email address as best you can. Thanks...
