My friend unaffected @ for we are bound by symmetry told me about this great group on yahoo. I would recommend it to anyone dealing with autoimmune issues. Do any of you know of any other good groups?
I’m checking into 2nd opinions with other doctors that specialize in autoimmune/infertility issues. There aren’t a whole lot. I called Dr. Kwak in Illinois, and they don’t do initial first consults over the phone. I’d have to drive there, which it isn’t TOO far. They WILL do correspondence over the phone after the initial meeting.
I also called The Beer Institute in California (wayyy to far for me). They DO phone consults, but it costs $600!! Yikes! We will have to think about that one. I know they are pretty renowned, so we won’t rule them out.
Does anyone know of any other good docs that specialize in this area of infertility? Have you seen or spoken to anyone other than Dr. Sher? If so, what was your experience/opinion? Thanks in advance.
I REALLY recommend to anyone dealing with long term infertility and/or losses to get a full work up for autoimmune issues. You can have a free consult with Dr. Sher, who will then order your testing if need be. Dr. Sher’s blog is very informative and helpful, too.
