Good for you, Jason! May I suggest The Daily Perk around the corner for a great bowl of homemade soup or a coffee and Whole Foods across the road from FC for everything edible, including great deli items, flowers, and more. The clinic is in a vibrant Vancouver location!
Parking is in the parkade access off Ash or take the Skytrain from the airport (Canada Line) and get off at Cambie and 9th. Twenty minutes and you're there! Much cheaper than parking, which cost us the price of several great meals.
The clinic diagnostics is on the street level. I suggest you take your time while there and ask a bunch of questions. Take someone else with you, if possible, to be your second set of ears. They can go in with you to the ultrasound (both my adult sons went in with me). Your appointment is your best time to get answers from the ultrasound. You'll get the images on CD right away, but the written reports take a few days.
The waiting room was all MSers when I was there -- several who I know through Facebook! It probably will be the same when you're there. I strongly suggest you network with those waiting and share stories. It helps. People take the news of a + CCSVI diagnosis differently, so supporting each other is important.
