I MUST give Dr. Edward H. Oldfield my highest possible praise and heartfelt thanks! He was my neurosurgeon at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) 1993. Having suffered with Cushing's Syndrome and Major Depression for 16 years, getting into Dr. Oldfield's hands was like a Christmas present I had waited for for 16 years. After two months of research, Dr. Oldfield performed a Transsphenoidal Pituitary Adenomectomy on me, removing my Pituitary Adenoma - a procedure he had developed.

when a dr is no longer genuine and becomes patronizing towards his patients, its time to call it a day. He and Vance play tag team and he follows behind her and "closes the deal". They're quite a pair ;) He as not prepared for my appt and it was painfully obvious.

This guy is a pretentious jerk who thinks he is perhaps a celebrity or that people should be bowing down to him. He seemed to look down on me during my initial visit with him and questioned me with a sort of subtle hostility. Will not be using Edward Oldfield as my neurosurgeon nor will I be going to UVA.

After two failed pituitary surgeries, Dr. Oldfield successfully removed my tumor that was more or less hiding. I am so grateful to this man and the gift he has for finding tumors others can't.
