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.

197575 tn?1215532624 That is so cool -- but kinda wierd ... I know the thyroid doesn't have anything to do with one's throat (other than its conventional physical location), but I just can't help imagining the woman with this spare throat & voice box inserted into her arm. I would be afraid of it saying something I might regret. Sorry -- I sometimes think of things that are funny in my head but then when I put them out on paper they're more wierd than funny. Please excuse me ...
792410 tn?1270315500 After being told by three different surgeons at three of the finest cancer centers in the world that I was not a candidate for surgery, and would be on chemo for the rest of my life, a surgeon at The Mayo Clinic said without hesitation that he thought I was a candidate for surgery and so I'm having surgery there on November 16th. The other surgeons said I was inoperable! I needed to learn to live with it because it was there to stay.
17976131 tn?1462411450 After two days of the samples being at the hospital where the biopsy was performed, they were sent out to Mayo Clinic for confirmation. Still no answer. Does anyone know what this means? Why couldn't everything be finished at my hospital? Is it possible that they have an idea of what is wrong and are not telling me? I can't take this waiting... total I've waited over a month to find out why I'm having symptoms (i.e. sore throat, cough, swelling, etc.
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 am 43 and thank god for the Mayo clinic went to see them because I had a ultra sound in a small town and they did nothing about it the doctors at Mayo told me I needed a biopsy right away the ultra sound said calcification with increased blood flow through out my nodule was also solid and small and my neck hurt on the right side.
Avatar n tn Results would have been 2 days ago, but did not occur. I had to press to find out, but they sent the sample to Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. (I live in southern Indiana.) Has anyone seen this happen before, why do they send them away?! Can't they diagnose cancer in Indiana? My nerves are ragged....
Avatar f tn is positive, I have spoken to my doctor and it has been decided that we will try to get into Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for their new Alcohol ablation treatment for resisitant, recurrent thyroid cancers. Was wondering if anyone has does this treatment?
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.

Avatar m tn This treatment protocol is a cure. It was invented at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN back in the late 1990s and was initially done primarily by Mayo, Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis and at the University of Nebraska. Now there are over 10 cancer centers around the country that are performing the protocol. Send your medical records and imaging studies on a Disk to Dr. William C. Chapman at Barnes-Jewish Hospital (Washington University) in St.

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.
