PANDAS-savvy MD's in NYC who take insurance?


Recommended Posts

I suspect possible PANDAS or PANDAS-like condition in a young adult (in low 30's) who has had definite strep infections, possible Lyme Disease, possible Mycobacterium avium (or other bird infections), possible viral infections, etc.

 

He is nice, but poor, lives in Brooklyn but can take subway to Manhattan. Has no car.

 

His insurance is Amerigroup (crappy, but it's all he has).

 

He tried to see Dr. Najjar, but the patient's insurance wouldn't allow it. And, Dr. Najjar won't take the patient on, as a charity case.

 

Can anyone recommend a good PANDAS & LYME literate doc somewhere in NEW YORK CITY (Brooklyn or Manhattan) who DOES take poor patients' insurance &/or who takes on charity cases?

 

Thanks in advance.

There is a pediatrician - Dr Susan K. Schulman - I believe she is in Brooklyn. She may not see adults, but she may be able to recommend someone who does.

 

Also, I've heard good things about Dr. Eric Hollander - I believe he is in Manhattan and he is a psychiatrist.

 

Good luck!
