Dr. Donohue at MGH Boston has been great thus far. He met with me for an hour and a half for my consultation, and he has been very responsive over the phone as well. Dr. Donohue is a cardiothoracic surgeon but has told me that he does not want to do surgery before ruling out all other options. As a single 24 yo working to pay back extreme college loans, I appreciate that he does not want to do surgery yet, if at all.

Catherine Wee, an OT at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, was also fabulous. I saw her for several appts, but my condition continued to worsen. She is down to earth and compassionate. When I had been referred to other doctors around the Boston area, she called me after a couple months just to check in - I really like her, but I'm just not in a place where PT is helpful.

Hi LadyLaura,
I am a patient of Dr. Donohue as well - he was the one who finally did the right imaging and confirmed I have compression in my thoracic outlet. He recommended a scalene Botox injection for me but we're still working on getting insurance to approve. I too have been really impressed with Dr. Donohue's approach - he seems genuinely interested in helping deal with this condition and was really thorough in our consultation. Best of luck to you!

I have read this entire thread and may have missed it accidentely but I saw one doctor listed that someone recommended for a VTOS/ATOS surgeon in New York.

Id think since New York has such a high population and is very well known for their good doctors that im not sure why I am having such a difficult time finding a fantastic doctor her In NEw YORK. Anyone recommend any? Thank you !!

Many of the state by state listings were compliled in 2006, a few have been updated when new info was mentioned, but not many.

There really should be some new Drs and surgeons coming along - we hope!

Please add to this list if you do find some good ones.

Thumbs up

thank you for the list. I've been referred to wisconsin, I live in Louisiana.
Can't afford the trip. So maybe the dr in shreveport could help, alittle far from home but not as far as wisconsin.

I see you found the sticky thread, the master list was originally made in 06.

There are new names coming up recently , hopefully the members that find the good drs/surgeons / PTs will remember to post the info here.

I guess no one had thought to add his details & contact info here yet.

Iris, Dr. Donahue is great. I hope your visit goes well. I don't understand why he's not on the list either.
