Does anyone know of what hospital out there is the best to go to?
We live in Missouri but would go anywhere in the world.

Either Mount Sinai in NYC, the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, and there is a couple of good hospitals in Boston. When I was at Mount Sinai (for 10 days) one of the nights that I was there I had a roomate who was from the Syracuse Area.

I am fortunate enough to live in Cleveland, and I would recommend the Cleveland Clinic to anyone. My Dr. there is Bo Shen. He is phenomenal - one of the best in the world. I truly believe that he has saved my life.

Carrotjuice- is that Virginia Mason in Seattle? If it is WOW> Can you tell me where you found the information about it? I live in Seattle but go to a different clinic system. I'll have to check it out and see if my doc has privileges there.
