I've been busy reading the posts and a week into my diagnosis have more questions than answers. Obviously I've got much more reading ahead.
One of my main concerns at this point is to find a doctor (hopefully) within my St. John's PPO that I feel comfortable with. Many of the posts I've seen list doctors in large cities. Although it's possible for me to go to Kansas City or St. Louis, going outside my PPO would be very expensive and likely not a great option for me financially. Right now I'm just working on 2nd (and 3rd and 4th) opinions for treatment options. My current ENT is 50/50 on radiation vs. surgery, and feels I should make the decision.
Can anyone out there provide info or their experiences with local ENTs and Neurosurgeons in the Springfield, Missouri area. KC and St. Louis advice would be helpful also.
Thanks a bunch.
