I have tried numerous neurologists in the Birmingham area and have had no luck, none of them seem to want to help me. I even went to a so called "headache specialist" who I had to book an appointment with 6 months out. He spent about
5 minutes with me, and then kept pushing back my follow-up appointment. Needless to say, a doctor who I can only see once a year is useless to me when I have headaches daily!
In my search, I have found three doctors who have been extremely helpful and I would highly recommend:
- Dr. Susan Kircher at Allergy and Asthma center of Birmingham. Dr. Kircher is an adult and pediatric allergy doctor. She has probably been the most caring and helpful doctor that I have found. She is always willing to spend time with me, she gets me in for appointments quickly, and she even takes the time to follow-up and see how I am doing even after she is no longer treating me. http://maps.google.com/maps?rls=com.microsoft:*&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&um=1&q=allergy+and+asthma+center+or&near=Birmingham,+AL&fb=1&view=text&latlng=33383780,-86732040,17327083124367976404
- Dr. Baltzer LeJeune at St. Vincent's. Dr. LeJeune is an ENT specialist who has been very helpful. He performed surgery on me to correct my severly deviated septum. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=l&view=text&q=baltzer+lejeune&near=Birmingham,+AL&ie=UTF8&hl=en&latlng=33492158,-86817770,3005336381563531591&ei=vmHkRoKVD5GArQL_uem2BQ&cd=1
- Dr. Jay Heidecker at St. Vincents. Dr. Heidecker is a pulmonologist who has been treating my sleep apena and doing his best to help with the headaches in fact, he is the one who suggested I go to Dr. Baltzer. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=l&view=text&hl=en&q=heidecker&near=Birmingham,+AL&ie=UTF8&latlng=33507537,-86787178,15418618966692212818&ei=9WHkRpKSH4iiqwKom8C4BQ&cd=1
So, I hope someone who is looking for a good Allergist, ENT, or pulmonologist will get some benefit from this post. I also hope that there is someone out there who can recommend a good doctor for me in the Birmingham area. Also, I don't mind driving if the doc you recommend is further away in fact, I am setting up an appointment to try a doc in Tuscaloosa currently.
