Has anyone on this site had Dr. Krempl in OKC do their ES surgery? The day for my long awaited appointment finally arrived yesterday. It really wasn’t what I expected. I’m also curious about the 2 docs in Dallas, TX and whether anyone has used them for their ES surgery.
Somewhat recently (I think w/in the past year), a member on this forum had ES surgery done by Teresa Chan-Leveno. I recall the gal was very happy w/ the outcome. Sorry to say I don’t remember who the member is.
Here’s a link to a post made several years ago by someone who went to her for surgery:
Hadassa mentioned Dr Krempl recently; he diagnosed her but hadn’t done the surgery before, here’s a link: New ES member - *updated with CT pics*
Hey Jules…I saw Dr. Krempl on Tues of this week and I’ll take a pass! I looked up my next closest surgeon and found Dr. Chan-Leveno. She actually mentions ES on her page which was fabulous news for me. I am going to pursue that avenue and hope for the best. Currently trying to stay out of the dark and continue moving forward. I am soooo disappointed that I wasted two and a half months waiting to see Dr. Krempl. My blood pressure spikes seem to be trying to get the best of me…just started with that 6 months or so ago. Always been pretty much on the low side until then. It really is quite frustrating to finally be diagnosed after 20+ years to now be challenged to find someone to fix it without taking on financial woes. Dallas is a doable avenue for me and I will post how the appointment process goes when I know something.
kiZe6159, What happened??? I was so hopeful that you could have a good visit with Dr. Krempl. Was it him or, was it his front desk people? I was so hopeful for you. If you need to call me, call me at ■■■■. I want to know because, I am now starting to have symptoms on the left side again.
Update on the Dallas, TX avenue…I have an appointment to see Dr. Chan-Leveno on September 6th and I am over the moon! I had to ask the nice scheduler to repeat it because I couldn’t believe I was getting in so quickly. Luckily I had some free time yesterday afternoon to do a bit of sleuthing on Dr. Chan-Leveno in Dallas and I liked what I saw on her web page so I decided to call this morning and see what I could get done. Fingers crossed scheduling the surgery will be quick as well. I gotta get this thing moving before I loose my sanity. The thought of enduring it much longer is almost unbearable. And since I have bilateral issues, I know it will be quite a bit longer or in ES years, an ETERNITY! LOL Chin up and movin on!
That is FANTASTIC NEWS! So glad you were able to get in to see Dr. Chan-Leveno so quickly. You have a great attitude as well. You can privately email Hadassa (by clicking on her screen name in her last post. That will take you to a page where you can send a private email) to discuss what happened w/ Dr. Krempl. I give you kudos for following the site guidelines & not publicly maligning him.
Praying your surgery date will be soon, too!
Great news that you haven’t got to wait too long to see her! I hope that you get some answers, & that the time flies by for you while you wait…
