Superb doctor when I had what I thought and had been described and treatment as cluster migraines from another doctor about 7 years ago. When I saw Dr. Chehrenama, she diagnosed my problem as Occipital Neuralgia. Quickly treated with nerve shots at fixed. Sadly, in same situation as of 1/16/16 and I can't seem to find her again. Help!
I have been seeing Dr. Chehehrnama for over 6 years now. I suffer from a variety of issues stemming from Chiari Malformation. Dr. Chehrenama has helped me through some terrible times and was instrumental in determining my Chiari diagnosis. There truly is no one better or more caring. I have sent many people to her and no one has been disappointed. She is incredibly thoughtful and does not rush to conclusions. She will try harder than any other doctor I have ever been to, to actually HELP find answers and never gives up. I cannot say enough good things about her.
I love visiting with Dr. Chehrenama and her nurse, Cheryl. It's always a pleasant experience and I feel like I'm being listened to throughout the visit. Dr. Chehrenama always has thoughts and ideas for my treatment and how to keep improving it. Because of her, I've been able to return to work part-time. I drive four hours to see her and it's well worth the trip. I highly recommend her to anyone with chronic migraines.
I have three autoimmune disorders; one of which results in gradual neuromuscular and neurological impairment that becomes accelerated and more severe with the passage of time. Diagnosis of the disease itself (rare in this country)is difficult, and despite having the disorder discovered at the Mayo Clinic and validated by two other specialists, I've seen numerous other physicians in the D.C. region who've been befuddled by the progression and unable to manage my care. The disease is incurable, but pain and inevitable debilitating deficits (a medical euphemism for disability) can be proactively managed. Pain is mitigated and disability slowed. Dr. Chehrenama actually LISTENS to her patients, gives them more time than either the health care system enables or most doctors allow, and is able to synthesize/integrate disparate symptoms and multiple diseases in a way that no other physician has done before. She has not really saved my life as much as she has extended it--both quantitatively and qualitatively. For this, I will be forever grateful and commend anyone to her who feels they have lost hope or will be forever circling the medical establishment in search of rational, reasonable, and humane treatment.
