Anyone know anything about Dr Shulman? Treating PANDAS

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know Dr Susan Schulman? Where is she?

 

She has presented on PANDAS in various youtube clips:

 

 

--interesting, I wonder if she refers for IVIG or pex?

Thanks EAMom--Among her numerous YouTube posted clips on PANDAS issues, in one of them she makes reference to Jewish kids (I believe she noted prevalence of OCD--I can't remember exactly.) I found this interesting however, as though my family is not of Jewish descent, my mother in law has dystonia (in her case they think it is a rare Scandinavian type.) Regardless, there is a basal ganglia dystonia that is prevalent in a certain Jewish group. Again, basal ganglia involvement.

 

I wonder if anyone from the forum has seen Dr Susan Schulman?--and I am curious if she has been able to refer for IVIG or pex?

 

She appears to have treated PANDAS and speaks about it in a very knowledgeable fashion on the clips.

i googled after EA mom's suggestion -- there was discussion on this forum in Sept -- don't know how i missed it -- kimballot and vickie, i think? i don't know how to post the thread.

Tmom -- did you see that?

 

i don't really know of this, but seem to remember from Cure Unknown some talk about treating lyme with a similar method that Dr. Shulman suggests in this clip -- treating with abx, stopping, starting again when symptoms return, stopping, starting again. i guess pulse treating -- but i think based on symptoms not a set schedule.

Speaking of ancestry, here's some threads from awhile back...

 

Mediterranean heritage? Italian, Jewish, etc

My understanding is that she is a very popular pediatrician in the New York city, especially with the Jewish community. She has a zithromax tapering protocol that she apparently uses for pandas kids but my understanding is that she does not do pandas consults, at least over the phone anyway.

Thanks All-- Very interesting.

 

Kayanne, did you mean to say you heard she is not taking new patients?

Did you contact her? Situations change of course, maybe she does now--

 

From her presentations she appears to be quite knowledgeable, not a newbie. Wow! A PANDAS antibiotic treatment protocol actually posted on the internet--

 

She certainly appears knowledgeable and willing to treat--:)
