Presented by:

Dr. Randall Porter, MD
Neurosurgeon, Barrow Neurological Institute

ANA members are invited to attend this live presentation.

When diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma, the amount of information is overwhelming. Visiting the doctor's office can be more confusing and emotionally charged as there is a lot to retain. Dr. Porter will discuss the problems with doctor-patient communication and methods to improve them, specifically in the context of acoustic neuromas.
