For Torontonians

I posted my question on another thread but I will also ask here.

I was wondering if someone could recommend a neurologist in Toronto who is good and also polite when it comes to CCSVI (I will be moving to Toronto in August)

I would need an answer before Thursday at noon because I have an appointment with the doctor who will give me a referral.

Comments which Mavis made in another thread about Dr. Daniel Selchen were relatively positive, so, he might be worth checking out. Here's the thread:

I am not sure if he is accepting new patients. That's a common problem here when it comes to specialists.
Try St. Michael's Hospital MS Clinic, they would know.
One more thing, if you ever get a chance to see him, be prepared to wait a LONG time in the waiting room as he is notoriously behind his schedule every time, or take the first appointment of the day.

Great...thanks for the replies!

If I decide to go with Dr Selchen, I don’t really mind waiting.

I saw Dr Gray at St Mikes, now this was last year, but he wasn't very sympathetic to the CCSVI idea. Loved to talk about CRABs though.
RRMS since Feb , 2010. No drugs, just vitamins and exercise.

Dr Warren Goldstein, Richmond Hill...he has heard Zamboni speak, thinks he has some good ideas, and was supportive when I went for my CCSVI last month. He doesn't think its a cause/cure but a piece of the puzzle...
