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 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!
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?
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 f tn Get a second opinion if possible. I recommend the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.They are wonderful!
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. I will call monday to schedule a colonoscopy. my symptoms are getting worse though. now i am feeling bloated and gassy but, I have not been able to have a bm today. geeezzz. I have also heard there is a bowel virus going around by a few people.
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 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 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 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.
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 We just returned from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and had a horrible experience, from start to finish. I was wondering who else has had such a bad experience as we did? To summarize, my wife has an upper spinal lesion (C1-C3) and almost died 3 yrs ago. The lesion is tumor-like but has not yet been diagnosed as to the cause to this day. Prior to the spinal lesion being diagnosed, she had been sick on and off every year for the prior 10 yrs.
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.
553283 tn?1409694311 Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic are obviously both top-flight medical centers, so the choice between the two would not be so much "which is better, Cleveland or Mayo;" it would be which one has a doctor or program that is more specialized to what you need.
572651 tn?1530999357 A while back I entered the patient scholarship opportunity for the Social Media conference at Mayo Clinic. You may have even been one of the many people who ‘liked’ me through Facebook. They awarded three scholarships for the patient/caregiver and one companion to attend the conference. I was not one of the three people selected to attend, but I did reach out to the winners with my congratulations.
973741 tn?1342342773 I just read that the Mayo Clinic in Arizonia is denying medicaid patients due to low reimbursments. They have to pay cash. Any thoughts?
237053 tn?1258828426 I went to the Mayo Clinic in AZ in January - hoping to find some answers. I will say that it is a very well run facility - but don't pin your hopes on a big "well known" facility to solve everything for you. The neurologist that I saw at the Mayo clinic didn't want to see my timeline or my list of symptoms - although at the end of my initial appointment, he did take my list of symptoms to include in my chart.
Avatar f tn I just saw you are in MN can you just to the Mayo clinic? You can fill out the forms on line (or call) and do not need a referral, or you just show up and try to get admitted. (If you do that get there early there is a long line.
17213106 tn?1456525991 I used to wake up at 2am with a tight stomach and back pain. Felt like trapped air. Went to Mayo Clinic got an upper endoscopy and Got diagnosed with SIBO. Gave me anti-biotic to get stop the bacterial overgrowth. Still have burping after meals and bloating after meals and am checking for other things wrong, but it is greatly reduced got treated for SIBO. Make sure they actually check for SIBO MN Gastro did not check for this and missed it the first time.
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 f tn My pain is on my upper left abdomen and left side of back. I am going to the Mayo Clinic this Thursday. I am so sick and tired of all of these tests!!!!!
Avatar f tn My new neuro wants to refer me to Mayo Clinic. She thinks this is definitely an autoimmune disease but doesn't think that it is MS due to the intermittent low grade fevers for no apparent reason. I haven't discounted the fact that more than one thing may be going on. Anyway, saw that JH has the big autoimmune disorder research center and wondered, if this is what we're looking at, if it might be the better place to go. Any comments??? Thanks!
Avatar f tn You can go online and register or call to set up appointments at Cleveland Clinic and the MAYO Clinic. MAYO has three clinics in the U.S. You do not need a referral to get in to either of these clinics. I have also heard of people the drive there and tell them their symptoms and sometimes they get in right away. So, you might want to consider checking them out online and trying to set up an appointment. I hope this will help you, as I know how frustrating this can be and disabilitating.
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.
Avatar f tn I'm in the same situation, getting a second opinion at the Mayo Clinic where I'd rather have the surgery if I am convinced it is nec scary.
