Cornell v Columbia - any suggestions?

Post by christi350 »

Hello all -
I haven't been on this board for nearly 14 years... wow has time flown. I had my transplant back in September 2004 and it's still going strong. woohoo!

I am however going to be moving to NYC over the summer and the transplant team at my original hospital suggested I see someone at either Cornell/Columbia for the regular follow up.

Any thoughts on the pro's and con's of each. I understand they are related but that physically they are at two different locations.

Any help welcome.

Thank you!

Its mostly UK users in this group so you may not get many replies..

Possibly try one of the US forums..

I haven't a clue where any of those places are:D

I would advise Mount Sinai in NYC. That where I go. They were wonderful and so helpful. You can look up my old posts I think.
