I spent some time on the phone yesterday with the wife of a recent AN diagnosee (the friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend kind of situation). Her husband has an AN that's a little over 2cm; symptoms are hearing loss and some minor balance issues. He's been scheduled for surgery in mid-April with Drs. David and Catalano at Lahey Clinic in Burlington, MA. I didn't know what to tell her about those doctors, since I don't know anyone who's seen them. They have all the right words on the Lahey web site, but I don't know their experience level.
Anyone have any experience with these particular doctors?
