Recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis
Hi, I have paralysis of my left vocal cord due to a surgical error (3 years ago, during a shoulder repair from an injury sustained at work). My ENT specialist here in NM said that NM does not have the ability to help me with what i need, so he referred me to Mayo. Well, Mayo has rejected me without even reviewing my case, the ENT here is the head of his dept at the teaching hospital at UNM, and says Mayo is the best at what i require. I am a nurse educator and dependent on my voice, which is of course not working properly. I was told that Mayos departments are all autonomous and have the right to select whom they treat. And they only accept previous pts of Mayo??
So my question to this forum is, how do I get an appt?
