Thank you for these.
If you are in the Mansfield or Bucyrus Area, I would NOT recommend Dr. Sunil Vaidya. Years go when my general practitioner sent me to do my very first sleep testing, he sent me to Dr. Schmidt. (Dr. Schmidt was extremely wonderful though does not take the medical card.) My GP told me he would never send anyone to Dr. Vaidya, as he is a pulmonary specialist who "dables" in sleep medicine. (GP's words not mine.) a year and a half ago in the interest of finding someone local, I chose to see Dr. Vaidya anyway and REALLY wish I hadn't. If you are concerned about why, please feel free to contact me about it. It was so bad I don't really want to get into all that here.
Also I don't know if he is still there or not, but there was a Doctor Weiland at OSU medical for a while. Because I had chosen to be med-free at the time he called a Narcolepsy virgin,and said I had no idea what I was talking about, even though I clearly knew as much as he did. In his benefit though, he was very nice and seemed to mean well. One of those didn't work for me, but might work for someone else kind of doctors.
I really like this recommend or not database here. This will be extremely helpful to me, though I will desperately miss Dr. Clark.
My next Doctor will have some very large shoes to fill.
