Has anyone here beed to DUKE?

I'm headed to Duke next week . I have bleeding from veins in my brain, and MS. I will be going to the Clinic IL Neuroscience Center. Dr Skeen. Has anyone here been to or know of anyone who has? Any experiences you can share with me about Duke, the Neuroscience Center, or Dr Skeen?  

Thanks HVAC for what you have shared. :)  I maybe see you up there if all goes well with my ride.

After my last Doc visit, I'm struggling with dread about going to another although I have no choice!! LOL

   I think I am the only one on the forum from this area.

Skeen is not only a good Neurologist no one has anything bad to say about him in this area.

In fact we try to keep him a secret since there are so few MS Specialists in the Triangle and the others have a lot less bed side manners.

I went a lecture with Skeen and thought why can't I have him for a Neurologist? I am still waiting for that appointment and I was referred last October.

   Also if it turns out you need Neurosurgery Duke is tops at that. They did Teddy Kennedy.

    I had my deafness corrected by a Duke surgeon and the experience was great.

I will see you soon!

Not very strong tonight.... not weeping, but sure feeling weepy!

Not too strong tonight.  

Sorry!  NiCee               ps. (gotta get a grip)

I'm having a mixed up write backwards day!

I keep telling myself I'll be just fine at Duke.

Really, I'm coming down with a bad case of the jitters.
