"My family has a history of essential tremors. My father, my sister and I all have them. However, we noticed that my father’s tremors were worsening. Wanting the best for him, I began seeking out the best specialists. He had specialists in New Zealand, but were they cutting edge?"
"An EO colleague suggested calling Healthnetwork."
"I had heard good things about Healthnetwork, but this would be my first opportunity to work with them. I sent an email to them and Scott replied very quickly.
My father was in New York visiting my sister Rebecca. I asked Scott if he could see someone while he was there. Scott made it happen.
My father, mother and sister all went to his appointment at Mount Sinai Healthcare in New York City. He was seen by 3 specialists that day and spent over 3 hours with them. They confirmed what we thought. His tremors had progressed into Parkinson’s Disease. However, we are confident of the treatment plan outlined by the physicians and dad could continue treatment home in New Zealand."
"The neurologist was also very interested in Rebecca’s tremors as well, due to the hereditary factor."
"She will be working with him too. He was puzzled how we got on his calendar so quickly, as most patients have to wait months!
Thanks to Healthnetwork, I am the golden child in the family for getting this appointment so fast. Scott reacted quickly and got us to the experts that we needed.
I would encourage all EO members to call Healthnetwork because this is a great benefit we have. Even those members who are not in the U.S. should explore the options that Healthnetwork has. We are in New Zealand, and the reality is that what they did for my father is as good as other reports of Healthnetwork’s tremendous help. And the cost to see the physicians was very reasonable and nowhere near as high as we feared, especially considering the time the physicians spent with him."
