U.S. Doppler

Post by Rokkit » Thu Aug 26, 2010 9:36 am

I have my 1 yr follow-up at Stanford in a couple of months. I was thinking about getting a doppler exam per Zamboni protocol in advance to take with me since Stanford doesn't do that. Anyone have a suggestion on a place to go. There's the new place in Atlanta, but so far there hasn't been much info about it.

I went to Atlanta last week and they were very thorough and followed Zamboni protocol. I had CCSVI surgery in July and rather than go back to Bulgaria (where I had test and the procedure the first time)for testing I went there to see if it was even worth my time. It looks like I'll need surgery again. The only thing is that I have no idea what I am looking at, but hopefully the doctor will! :) I wish you luck in your search and let me know if you have any other questions.

The cost is $550USD in Atlanta... if you contact them, they'll let you know for sure, but that's what it was when I went. Good luck!!

I had a doppler in Atlanta done this week, highly recommend. They follow the Zamboni protocol to the letter and have the new software/machine. The results you get are the 5 criteria Zamboni outlines you need 2 of 5 of to be considered suffering from CCSVI.
