Who is a specialists in trigeminal neuralgia?

My sister had surgery for this excruciating pain about 15 years ago. The pain has come back; her GP made an appointment for her with an Amarillo neurologist in August! That is unthinkable! A physician in Texas, Oklahoma, or New Mexico would be preferable but would like to know the best doctor for this problem.

Hi Anon,
I am sorry to hear that your sister has a return experience with this severe pain. In seeking a specialist who treats trigeminal neuralgia, has your sister checked with her insurance company about participating providers or are you looking outside of insurance coverage? You mentioned that you would consider specialists in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. I would suggest beginning with researching the medical associations in each of these states. Once you come across a neurologist with experience in trigeminal neuralgia, you can read up on that physician. Example, most specialists will have a website listing their education, training, publications, areas of expertise. Your sister should ask her GP for the names of other specialists. Call around and see if she can get an earlier appointment with another specialist. Keep us posted.
