I recently received MRI results and have been referred to Dr. Brian Gian at Kaiser Permanente. Since Kaiser is a closed network I can’t shop around for neurosurgeons outside Kaiser but I’m curious to know if anyone has had any experience with KP and any recommendations about who I might want to see that is experienced. Appreciate this forum as a resource since I’m just starting out.

I'm sorry, I don't know anyone at kaiser. I think there are some old threads about a socal Kaiser MD...can't remember the name. My experience was that HMO doctors had limited knowledge and experience. My angiomas was bleeding and growing and in a dangerous location, so I ended up changing my insurance to a ppo so that I could see all the best doctors. Brain stuff is no joke and if I needed a surgery...I wanted the best. You might want to try the Facebook group for more opinions of kaiser MDS...maybe there's a good one? If not there are some good nds at UCSF and Stanford nearby. Best wishes!!
