CNNH Stories: George R.

When George started having seizures – daily – at age 11, his mother knew she needed specialized medical care to address his issues. She was referred to Dr. Mark Mintz and, from that point forward, she felt like she was no longer alone in their journey. Eighteen years later, George remains seizure-free.

In this video, hear George and his mother, Maureen, explain how the personalized and compassionate care they received at CNNH contributed to a quality of life for George and peace of mind for Maureen.

CNNH Stories: Evan H

When Evan’s son, Christopher, was born with multiple health issues, she felt that something wasn’t quite right. While he was eventually diagnosed with autism, she felt like there were other symptoms that did not quite fit his diagnosis. She could not get answers to her questions… until she came to CNNH NeuroHealth.

At CNNH, Christopher benefitted from “precision” or “personalized” medicine where the integrative clinical team – including a neurologist, genetics physician and behavior analyst – evaluated him separate from his diagnosis.

In this video, hear Evan explain how the clinical team’s “inquisitive refusal to give up” revealed new information about her son’s diagnosis and opened up treatment options for Christopher!

CNNH Stories: Teresa

Teresa’s son was having significant behavioral issues at preschool to the point that she went through 3 different preschools in 3 months. At CNNH, the neurologist and the neuropsychologist were able to put “both pieces of the puzzle together”. Hear in Teresa’s own words about her experience at CNNH from her perspective as a working family physician.

CNNH Stories: Karen

Karen, a mother of a son with autism, describes her long, frustrating and confusing journey trying to find answers for her child’s struggles at home and at school. After years of not being listened to by doctors and schools, she came to CNNH where she was finally able to receive a definitive diagnosis, effective treatment plan, and coordinated follow-up care.
