why isn't Dr. Paolo Bolognese board certified?

Chris, I'm one of the older ones on here (77) and can only tell you that right from the beginning The Chiari Institute had problems of one sort or another.

Dr. Bolognese was a young doctor being trained under another well know surgeon (can't think of his name). Eventually the other doctor retired and Dr. Bolognese has his own clinic/hospital. Perhaps he's waiting for Certification....I honestly can't tell you. Ask the nurse this question. You can even phone and try to find out. Good luck. Yours, Lenora
