Dear Dr. Stoddard
I wanted to provide you with some follow-up since you were very helpful to me in the early days of my injury. Its been 5 years now and have been continually experiencing disturbing symptoms and not able to return to full hours at work due to vision and balance problems, and neck pain/muscle problems etc. My doctor recently sent me to a specialist who operates some concussion / head injury clinics in the GTA. He suspected a stroke and he ordered a SPEC scan which was done in August, it showed a stroke in the Right Temporal Lobe. It was a few months after the injury happened when I initially came to see you and you, out of all the doctors/neurologists I saw, were on the right track when you suspected an artery dissection was the probable cause after neck manipulation. The artery, apparently, can heal within a couple of months so the CT scan showed normal. I guess I will never really know for sure if that was the cause, but it felt like I took a bullet in the back of the head when I had that neck adjustment.
Anyway, I wanted to let you know, as you provided me better care than I received from any of the many many doctors with whom I consulted.
