DOES ANYONE KNOW A DR THAT HELPS WITH THIS CONDITION IN ORANGE COUNTY CA.?
My name is Marla, and I reside in Orange County.
In February ( a few months ago) I was ref to Dr. Vernon Williams
(Neurologist), with the Kerla Jobe Orthopedic Clinic.
The office in Anaheim is only open on Wednesdays.
The address for the Kerlan Jobe Orthopedic Clinic :
2400 East Katella Ave., Suite 400
Anaheim, Ca. 92806
Phone # (714) 937-1338
Should you call and make the appointment, stress that you are in
chronic pain (therefore, you will be seen sooner).
Just to let you know, I found out about Dr. Williams by fluke.
Because I also have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, I googled last December
the subject ’ Thoracic Outlet Syndrome ’ , and found this interesting
article by Dr. Richard Sanders, M.D. (www.ecentral.com).
After reading the article, I knew I had TOS (also, I was diagnosed with
TOS and RSD back in August 1999, but was never told until I requested
my old medical records - I’m from No. Ca., and I wanted my records to
give to my new doctor last year. Upon reading the records, that’s when
I discovered that a neurologist I had seen concluded that I had TOS and
what is now known as RSD. No fault of the neurologist, because he had
this in a memo to my former doctor, who again never told me).
I have been in pain for years not knowing what was going on. Different
doctors saying I had fibromyalgia to carpel tunnel, etc…
I re-read the article by Dr. Sanders toward the end of February of this
year and called the doctor.
The doctor states that if you have any questions, feel free to call him
to discuss the symptoms.
I called, and within five minutes Dr. Sanders called me.
Dr. Sanders asked me detailed questions for about 25-30 minutes. Then
I was able to go over with him what I’ve been experiencing over the
many years. Dr. Sanders did suggest that I have TOS, yet, also RSD.
Dr. Sanders asked me where I live, and that is when he ref me to Dr.
Vernon Williams (Neurologist).
Dr. Sanders is a Board Certified General Surgeon and Vascular Surgeon
and has been treating patients with TOS for over 30 years. He is also
Dr. Sanders does not charge for the consult.
You may also want to call him and see what he says. He may suggest
someone other than Dr. Williams.
Dr. Sanders is in Denver, Colorado, but here are his phone numbers.
