Mayo Clinic: Yes or No for Chiari / EDS III / CCI?

The Mayo Clinic is obviously world renowned, but I've heard many mixed reviews regarding their ability/willingness to diagnose and treat Chiari, Ehlers-Danos III - Hypermobility, and Craniocervical Instability (CCI).

No do not go to Mayo . they do not have experts in chiari

the chiari institute is the best possible place to go.
