Cleveland Clinic
« on: February 15, 2008, 08:08:44 am »
My Neurosurgeon has referred me to the Cleveland Clinic for any treatment as they do not see/treat a whole lot of AN in the Toledo Area.  Has anyone seen a doc at the Cleveland Clinic?  Can anyoen recommend a doc at Celveland Clinic?  Much Thanks,

Daydreamer - When I was doing my footwork a friend recommended a neoursurgeon named Dr Kalfas. I do not know his experience with AN's but I trust the resources and may be worth checking. There is another Dr in Chagrin Falls, Dr Megerian, ENT  who practices out of Universtiy Hospital of Cleveland who came highly  recommednded by my physician and I beleive Un of Cleve is a good hospitlal. According to my physician he treated  70 AN patients last year. If you goole Megerian you will see list of credentials a mile long. At the end of the day, if you are anything like me, you will want to feel confident with your doctor. Best of Luck.

Dr Megerian performed my 20 hour surgery to remove a 4 cm AN that was very sticky. He is an excellent surgeon and works with neurosurgeon Dr. Warren Selman.

Dr M is also very personable. He was very concerned about me personally and I felt as if he truly cared about me. He even called me at home before surgery just to see if I had any questions.

He is at University Hospitals Cleveland. Please feel free to email me with any questions.

I highly recommend Dr Megerian.

Hi,  I did see a Dr. Peter Webber at the Cleveland Clinic, he worked with Dr. Lee. Dr. Lee is the Neurosurgeon. I opted to go to Columbus, to Ohio State University and had Dr. Brad Welling & Dr. Chiocca, Chiocca was the Neurosurgeon. Wonderful Physicians!!
