Do we have a Neurologist in town, or do we only have a visiting one? I need some testing done, I think.

just because people keep telling you to get your head examined?? lol

I think I've been misdiagnosed for years with panic disorder, when in reality I may have a form of epilepsy. Mr. Smartypants. LOL

I don't think there is.
I usually go to Toronto to have my head examined.

11-26-2009, 01:33 PM
Aw, man, are you kidding me? : (

11-26-2009, 01:41 PM
Hey I'm not sure. I just know I've never seen one here.

11-26-2009, 02:19 PM
I think I'd rather see if I can see one across the river, before going all the way to Toronto. Cash up front and a few minutes ride across the bridge is preferrable in my books.

I believe there is one from Sudbury that comes to town still.

I get the Northern Travel Fund so I just go down for an extra day and treat it as a trip.

C All your doctor's office or call the GHC. They should be able to tell you. Or look in the Yellow pages ;)

11-26-2009, 02:33 PM
Tried the yellow pages...lots don't list what kind of doctor. One is listed as a neurosurgeon, but I don't think that's what I need.

Andre, yeah, there's the travel grant, been there, done that with my kid. Doesn't cover all of it, and sure doesn't give you back the time to travel and be down there. I hate that part.

Dr. Nolan is a visiting neurologist who sets up at the hospital 759-3434 ext 5297

Thanks, yoda.

Need your head examined? Try Riverview lol

11-26-2009, 04:51 PM
your Dr. will ussually send you to Dr.Jenkins at the GHC, he is internal medicine, he is good(will remind you of Mr.Howel on Gilligans Island) but he is not a Neurologist...I go to Hamilton to see Dr. Jamie Sylva...he worked wonders for my migraines.

I am pretty sure you need a referral to get an appointment with Dr. Nolan. I know my dad had to a few years ago.

11-26-2009, 07:27 PM
Even with a referral from your GP, you can expect a good long wait to get an appointment. My hand went numb for seven months and my doctor called Dr. Nolan to get me in ASAP (As a musician, not having use of a hand is not a small thing)... after seven months, I still did not have an appointment, even after repeated calls to make sure I was still on the list. Never did get in to see him and my hand is still partially numb (three years later).

Good luck to you!

Dr. Nolan is who I was referred to for my wrist/hand earlier this year. After waiting almost 4 mths I was called with my appoint. and I went in to see him to have my testing done. It is very hard to get in to see Dr. Nolan since he only comes in once a month, he's brief but he's good.

11-26-2009, 09:21 PM
yoda does a person need a gp's referral to set up an appt. with this dr. nolan?

yes, your Dr's office needs to fax the referral to Dr. Nolan. He comes to the Sault one weekend per month. I think the wait time is four to six months to get in

jenkins good? keeping my mouth closed

note; I went to Hamilton.....nuff said.

11-27-2009, 12:01 AM
a-yup. Soo, MI is looking better all the time. Thanks for all the info.

11-27-2009, 01:49 PM
Same story here. Referral from my family doctor with Dr. Nolan and wait three months.

11-28-2009, 02:46 AM
No dr that I know of either,been travelling to toronto with my daughter for past 13 yrs now.

I see a Neurosurgeon in Toronto who is wonderful. If you want his information pm me.
The Neurologist from Sudbury couldn't do my surgery that's why I went to Toronto. So depending on what you need you might have to go to Toronto.
