    Saw a neurologist, Dr. Ronnie Freilich at Cabrini Malvern recently for diagnosis and treatment of an abnormality that was picked up in a MRI scan.

    The hospital is rather large and a bit of a maze so there was some effort in locating Dr. Freilich’s room. Fortunately, there were lots of clear signs and directions.

    Dr. Freilich was referred by my GP, Dr. Robert Chan, who spoke highly of him and I could see why. Dr. Freilich was very thorough; rapid-fire questions to build a medical history followed by a physical assessment to determine the condition. He checked for movement disorders which could be a result of the malformation of the skull where the brain and spinal cord meets.
    The entire appointment took 20 -30 minutes.
    His explanations were clear and towards the end of the appointment, he concluded that I did not have anything too serious to worry about. He even said he would get a second opinion from a colleague to further confirm this.

    Later that afternoon, Dr. Freilich personally called after having his conversation with the colleague. In fact, he had called twice! When he was unable to leave a voicemail the first time around (it was voice-to-text), he rung again as he wanted to make sure I would receive his message. Am very grateful to have had my appointment with him. I greatly appreciated the care and professionalism Dr. Ronnie Freilich has shown me and would highly recommend him to anyone!

    Please note that this is not a public hospital.

    Out of the blue, I received a facebook questionnaire regarding hip and knee replacements.
    Initially, I thought it was spam but decided to follow it up as it’s terribly pertinent to my ailing condition which has been ongoing now for the last two years and have only recently come to accept that I may need surgery (go figure, I guess facebook is good for something).
    It turns out the facebook survey was for a seminar run by a Dr Daevyd Rodda who operates out of a number of hospitals including the Cabrini. I was able to secure a place at the seminar at short notice as it was all confirmed online for me (which is not bad for a pensioner) 😉
    I feel so much better about my options after the seminar. Dr Rodda made things simple and explained how new technologies called MyKnee4me developed by Medacta give you the best chance of painless success as the replacement is specifically modeled and customised to match the ‘original’.
    So finally, now I am feeling more comfortable and coming to terms with the fact that surgery may be my only way forward, however, I do feel more equipped to make that decision.
