Myoclonus Doctors?

Does anyone know of doctors who are specialists in palatal or middle ear myoclonus besides Dr Poe in Boston? He is no longer accepting new patients and I need to see someone who has some knowledge of this subject.

Thanks!

I have heard good things about Hain in Chicago, don't know what his specialty is but he is on my short list to go to if my situation does not improve in the near future.

Re: Myoclonus Doctors?

Sorry to hear Dr. Poe stopped accepting new patients. He must be booked
straight through 2009.

Columbia University Medical Center has a myoclonus clinic familar
with middle ear myoclonus. You will need a referral and appointments
are scheduled about two months out.

Also, Dr. Sismanis in Virginia comes highly recommended by many. Just ask
Lib - he performed her middle ear myoclonus surgery.


Check out the Vestibular Disorder Association site. They have a
national listing of doctors organized by specialty. It may be of additional
help.

Re: Myoclonus Doctors?

FYI-- Dr. Poe is not booked through 2009. Not in that sense anyway. LOL. I called his office today to schedule an appointment for my PET and the receptionist said that he's going on sabbatical for a year in July. He is referring PET patients to Dr. Elias Michaelides at Yale.

Re: Myoclonus Doctors?

Thanks for sharing this update about Dr. Poe.

Would you happen to know who he is referring for middle ear myoclonus
patients?
