Dear fellow ANers,
It is not my intent to advertise here. I'm just telling you that it would be in your best interest to give Dr.Sisti as a neurosurgeon and Dr. Isaacson a call if you need a surgeon and an oncologist. Although, I did quite a bit of research in 2004 (13 neurosurgeons and 1 radiooncologist) some from out of State and I reinterviewed 3 of them when I needed Gamma Knife. I must tell you that I received no pressure from Dr. Sisti!
Dr. Kondzulka and Dr. Golfinos ( the other 2 interviewees) both asked me what was I waiting for to radiate with the Gamma Knife? In January, I was scared in June I was confident that I was going with the right team for me.
Go forward with confidence make the choice that's right for you but consider all the possibilities ie..travel, follow up,reputation, recommendations, and treating hospitals reputation.
The knowledge that I have helped another ANer to make a decision is enough satisfaction for me, I need no other motivation.
Even if after all this what is in your gut is not Dr. Sisti nor NY Presbyterian, I've offered my best advice.
