MS neurologist in 60464 zip code

Postby Pookie » Mon Nov 22, 2010 5:04 am

Please help. My hustband is the VA hospital because of severe trigeminal neuralgia. They are treating him with anticonvulsants. He does not do well won these. He is very weak. I would like them to do IV steroids. They don't seem to want to. Can someone recommend a neurologist that specializes in MS in the 60464 zip code. Can anyone help with a name?? I need to get him out of there. They are not doing good for him. I am very frustrated. Thanks in advance.

It looks like 60464 is near Chicago. Have you looked into Rush Medical center:

or maybe Northwestern University Hospital?

Pookie,

Dr. Dusan Stefoski is the head of the MS clinic at Rush. His number is 312/942-8011. I have been going to him for years. Both he and the staff are great.

I use to go to Dr. Bruce Cohen at Northwestern. Sorry I don't have his number.

Both of these hospitals are about 40 minutes from the 60464 zip code. The only thing in 60464 is just a small community hospital.

Good luck.

Thanks! As soon as we can get him out of the VA, I will try going there. Just don't know what to do.
