Customer Question

Hello I'm Mr. Davis my wife and I drive from Atlanta to Detroit, but when we go trough the Appalacian mountains she gets real bad headaches. She suffers from a meningioma and has had Gamma Knife which has proven not to have helped. I wanted to know if would be better or safer to fly?

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes it is safer to fly as the cabins are pressure controlled avoiding the high altitude related problem experienced during driving.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
