He sent me for neuro-psych eval. I found out from a CHIRO who read same films Eidelmann saw that I have multiple neck breaks almost a year later, and I am much, MUCH worse. Had numerous test and kept 'passing out' during tests at Mayo and he didn't think this was abnormal. Now have significant damage to brain from traumatic tonsillary ectopia...that went undiagnosed thanks to Eidelmann missing the problem completely. Scheduled for cervical fusion and brain decompression. Too old to practice??

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Benjamin Eidelman, MD?
He is wonderful. He listens. You can see he is thinking about the possibilities of your issue beyond any other specialist. He calls you back personally many times. But if not him, his assistant gets back with you quickly. He was the 4th specialist I saw but the first one to say we will figure this out. That meant everything.
