Wernicke Korsakoff

Does anyone have experience with a physician who specializes in alcohol related neuropathy, specifically thiamine treatment for Wernicke Karasoff Syndrome?

Hello @jobrad, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. While we wait to hear from other members on treatment of the Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome, you might be interested in the following articles that I found on the National Institutes of Health and Mayo Clinic websites.

I'm not sure if it's an option for you but the Mayo Clinic's patient centered approach to diagnosis and treatment of rare disorders would be a good choice. If you would like to seek help from Mayo Clinic, you can contact one of their appointment offices. The contact information for Minnesota, Arizona and Florida can be found here:
