Seeking Neuropathy Specialist

Hi. My dad is at wit's end over foot pain and burning. Physio and chiro care over the past month has not helped. He. has not yet been referred to a neurologist in/near Toronto. I will be demanding that his family doctor do so. Does anyone know of a Toronto area neurologist with a specialty in diabetic and/or peripheral neuropathy? And how does one see such a specialist without having to wait months for an appointmnet. My dad is a very strong man who has never complained about anything, so we're extremely worried now that he's saying he'd rather die than endure this pain any longer. Please help if you can. Thanks.

  • Below is a list of Neurologist willing to take on new patients. Dr. Brill has an extensive background in Diabetic Neuropathy (also known as DPN - diabetic peripheral neuropathy) research. I would try her clinic at TGH first. Dr. Esmail is our chief medical adviser for the Canadian Neuropathy Association.

    I hope this helps.
