Patient Comments (2)
in Wausau,Wi |
I was referred to Dr. Passini and was very impressed. Dr. Passini confirmed I had MyastheniaGravis but suspected something more. After a thorough exam he ordered a brain scan and found I had a tumor. After brain surgery they found cancer in the brain and lung, which is treatable. Thanks to Dr. Passini for his being thorough enough to find the whole problem.

He made a diagnosis without a physical exam other than the knee tap (in which 1 side barely moved). He also didn't go over the pages that I had to fill out allowing me to explain or voice my concerns. He did order 2 tests, but both came back neurologically normal. I don't know how that's possible when I was previously told that I have bulging discs in my neck and arthritis. He will not know this though, as since my tests were normal he is done with me.
