Has anyone seen any doctors in NYC?
« on: February 23, 2015, 09:03:46 pm »
I was diagnosed with an AN about a year ago. I have being seeing a doctor at Mt.Siani but at this point I would like to get a second opinion. Any thoughts.

Hi MValentino....

NYU....Drs. Thomas J. Roland, Dr. John G. Golfinos and also Dr. Douglas Kondziolka are the team to see there.  Just wonderful...Good luck.

There's a search box at the top right of this page.

Put in the names of the doctors mentioned by NYLady and you'll come up with a plethora of posts mentioning those doctors.

I am new to this but after review of people's posts on here I would like to give more information about my AN. I was diagnosed last year age age 33 with a 3x 5 mm size AN. Fortunately after a few MRIs my tumor has not grown at all and I have little to no symptoms at this point. I have her wonderful thimgs about Dr Roland and Dr G neither of which take my insurance. I am newly married and want to have a baby and would like a second opinion to see what my options are. My doctor so far is Dr Smouha and someone he works closely with Dr Post of Mt Siani in NYC.
any thoughts?

Hi,
You have options with a small stable tumor. In addition to the doctors at Mt. Sinai and NYU, Dr. Sisti at Columbia, who does surgery and radiation, and Dr. Philip Gutin at Memorial Sloan Kettering teams with Dr. Selesnick at Cornell, are well regarded.

Hello all, I'm new to this: 24 year old female with a 2.7 cm  acoustic schwannoma removed on March 25th 2015 in NYC by Dr. Michael Sisti. He is absolutely amazing. He only operates on larger tumors, but he is literally a rockstar in the field and he was recommended to me by another outstanding neurosurgeon that I know personally. He specializes in acoustics. Hope this helps.

Hi . I have Dr Shrivastava, he is the Neurosurgeon and Dr Choe he is my E.N.T. They both work out of Mt Sinai. I am on W.W but like them both. Good luck.

I saw Dr. Selesnick at Cornell Weill and Dr. Golfinos at NYU.    My friend recommends Dr. Choe at Sinai very highly.
