582396 tn?1259863489 I am over the moon excited that DH got a 5-10 day appointment at Mayo Clinic - Dec. 10. Anyone have any experiences on what to expect etc?
627388 tn?1222198212 Has anyone from the MS forum ever seek treatment for their MS at the Mayo Clinic? If so, how was your as your experience with physicians from the clinic? I am considering driving up to Mayo at some point if my neurologist in town can't definatively diagnosis me.
Avatar f tn This makes me so angry, that they would even say you would have a bag! If by chance you ever need to have your colon removed, you will not have to have a bag, you can have a J-Pouch which means they remove your colon, attach your small intestine to it and your small intestine acts as your colon. My son has this. You are wise to keep getting others opinions on this. MD Anderson in Texas is world renowned for their works with this, so if the Mayo can't help, try them.
Avatar n tn i have already recieved the paperwork from them via email. I also spoke to the Mayo Clinic just incase i could not get covered and Mayo told me they work out payments. But thank god I can get the cobra extention.

Avatar f tn I have just made an appointment for a full work up at the Mayo Clinic, does anyone know the tests involved and how much they charge? Thank you!
Avatar m tn Some here on the board are not real pleased with the Mayo clinic. It seems they have their own set of standards to give out a dx of MS. I personally know nothing about them and wish you the best....hoping for that answer.
1264955 tn?1381782221 Has anybody here been to the neurology clinic at the Mayo or in their inpatient pain treatment program?
Avatar m tn Truthfully, I've heard one of the best MS Clinics in the US is the Mellen Center at Cleveland Clinic. You might try checking out They list all the clinics available, etc. My neuro said the clinic at Cincinatti isn't that great but thinks Cleveland Clinic is really good. I've never heard of the Mayo Clinic being highly rated for MS, but more for heart desease.
Avatar f tn If there is any history of colon cancer in the family and the test for BRCA1/2 is negative they will test for Lynch Syndrome. Here are some notes from Mayo Clinic. Joy, my mother is going through testing now and they have decided to test for BRCA1/2 first. They will test for Lynch Syndrome down the line if need be. I had never heard of this so wanted to share.
Avatar f tn I have POTS and am supposed to go to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota this winter. I'm curious who has been to Mayo before and how their experiences went. Did you use the POTS clinic part of it or something else? I am also curious because I am mainly going to see if any doctor can figure out the underlying cause of my POTS (my current doctors are not interested in testing for any possible causes of it). Should I go to the POTS clinic part of it or should I just see a general doctor there?
Avatar n tn Cleveland clinic in Ohio has some excellent doctors. There is also Mayo clinic, and John Hopkins. I hope you get some comfort and rest soon, best wishes...
486038 tn?1300063367 I've not been to the Jacksonville Mayo or the MS clinic in Houston, I'm sorry about that. I have heard a lot of good things about the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas and Dr. Elliot Frohman who works there. I'm sure if you google his name you can find out much more than I can tell you about, here.
Avatar n tn You might want to consider having them sent to the Mayo Clinic for review and they can return the samples to you. I think it costs $45. My mother had that done. The Mayo Clinic is one of the main places that specialize in amyloidosis as does the Amyloid Boston Clinic in Mass. There are many reasons for your symtoms that you're explaining. Waiting for your reply.
Avatar f tn I decided that I should travel to the United States and hopefully get a diagnosis. I know that Mayo clinic and Cleveland clinic have a good dysautonomia clinics but I don't know which one should I choose so I would appreciate any suggestions !!! Also I know healthcare in the US is so expensive and since I don't have insurance I wonder how much such a visit to one of those hospitals will roughly cost ?I know it's hard to tell but I'm asking for a roughly cost. Thanks.
655875 tn?1295695107 t hear back from them right away - I requested an appointment with the Mayo Clinic and it was almost a year before I heard back from them! If your current docs office does the request/referral, though, it should go a lot faster.
Avatar n tn I too have had precancerous polyps removed (years ago and just recently) but my doctor says to come back much sooner than 10 years when a 'pre cancerous polyp' has been present. I think it's 2 years, I wouldn't wait that long or at least ask another doctor's opinion on that (10 years is an awfully long time to wait for another screening if history of precancerous polyps).
Avatar f tn He left the Mayo clinic and started the Clinic for Urologic and Pelvic Pain in Lake Elmo Minnesota. He now diagnosis and performs the sugery. He was the first to diagnos me in Feb. of 2005. I liked him but decided to see the Dr. in Texas because I feel they have a better program Dr. Renney also had this condition and had surgery nin France. He took a team of 4 dr.;s back to France for training. the Dr. the does the surgery, Dr. Lee Ansell is a neurosurgin not just a urologist like Dr. Antolak.
Avatar f tn I trust pretty much all the information I read from the Mayo Clinic site. Here is the information I was able to locate for you. I have no idea if detoxing really works. Leave it up to the professional to help you with that one :) Here is what a nutritionist from the Mayo Clinic had to say about them..... Question Detox diets: Do they work? Do detox diets offer any health benefits? Answer from Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D.
Avatar f tn m curious as to why so many people are against the Mayo Clinic? I myself am a patient there currently undergoing diagnostics, though I received a clinical MS diagnosis upon first appointment in November, at this time my other cranial issues and viral issues are also being examined. My Neuro there was able to detect issues in one visit that other facilities could not in several other states- including Stanford Over the course off seven years.
3079363 tn?1363273715 He suggested that I go to the Mayo Clinic or Cleveland Clinic and get a third opinion. He said if I did have MS, he would be glad to treat me. I told him I thought I needed something for depression and he suggested Cymbalta. I told him that I reacted badly to that and he didn't offer any other alternatives. He told me to continue my medications until I saw someone else(early on he suggested I needed none of them) since they seemed to be working for me...Did I miss something here????
Avatar f tn I think that my digestive system got tight and has problems from the SIBO I had last year that was diagnosed by the mayo clinic. The Mayo Clinic says the SIBO is gone, but has most likely left me with these other problems that I am seeking treatment from the Mayo Clinic right now. Hope these new treatments work for me and hope this information might help you.
1225331 tn?1333365769 Maybe I was too harsh about Mayo. To be fair to Mayo Clinic, I do think they do have some very good doctors there, maybe it's just hard to get a neuro diagnosis - as it seems to be most other places in this country - so what's new? I did really think the Mayo radiologist who looked at my films was excellent - he found a couple of things the original outside radiologist did not notice such as brain mass loss.
Avatar m tn t know what is causing the problems but (after many tears) said that they would not give up on her. She returns to Mayo Clinic sometime towards the end of April to see and Rheumatologist and more testing. I lost my son in 2001 in a horrilble accident caused by a hypoglycemic attack from Junenile Diabetes and my daughter lost (my grandson) her son from a drug that was given to him two weeks before he was to graduate from High School, he never woke up. All this has just compounded things.
