Dr. Schievink and his team of anesthesiologists and radiologists had the skill to identify and repair a spinal fluid leak that other physicians were unable to diagnose or locate. My surgery and stay at Cedars Sinai were unexpected but I could not have had a better experience and could not have had a better surgeon or support team. I will always be thankful that I found Dr. Schievink. and that he was available to help me.

Dr.Schievink literally saved my life! He found my CSF leak that for 10 years nobody could find!!!! He has a great outlook and works hard to find the answers and explain it to you!!!! Without his expertise I would not be here today!!!!!

I saw Dr. Schievink and he told me to get a blood patch. No real explanation. Also it is very hard to get a hold of him and reschedule an appointment. I have had chronic headaches for over 5 years and am still suffering.
