Recommended Canadian Neurosurgeons?

Postby Cait » Wed Sep 12, 2012 4:09 pm

Hey all,

I had my first consultation with a neurosurgeon the other day and he's referring me to a vascular neurosurgeon, a Dr. Fleetwood from Halifax. Anyone have any experience with him? I'm not sure what to think about surgery at this point but it'd be nice to get some insight on the people I'm being referred to.

Hi Cait,

To help you in your search of people having had experience with Dr. Fleetwood from Halifax, perhaps you would like to post on our Facebook as well. I know that a few people from out east have liked our page, and perhaps some of them may have had experience with him. Kindly let us know how you made out.

Thanks.

ps. Does this mean you would have to go all the way from BC to Halifax or is he working in BC at the moment?

Hey Henk,

I'll do that (post in the Facebook group). He's just in the process of moving from Halifax to Vancouver Island from what I understand (or he'll be here in a few months). I won't see him for a couple months so I can report back then. :)

Thanks Cait,

Looking forward to it. We actually just posted an important question to answer on the Facebook page as well. We would love to have your input on that as well.

Thanks.
