Like Pam said, be very careful with doctors like this. there was a guy in my church a while back that did this "all natural" treatment, and he literally would have people close their eyes and put a bunch of vitamins and herbs in front of them, and whatever they pointed at is what they needed. And their was another guy from our church that believed him, and he tried the vitamins/herbs and come to find out he had colon cancer and died cause this "doctor" told him that all he needed was whatever he pointed at. Also another woman I know almost died from cancer seeing this guy too, but luckly she got to a real doctor in time and had to be aggressivly treated, and she's been fighting this cancer for years, but if she hadn't been caught by a real doctor, she would of been dead a long time ago. This vitamin doctor ended up losing his lisence, he caused alot of people to get very ill and the deaths of a few people cause he convinced them that blindly pointing at vitamins/herbs was all they needed for ANY problem. The church tried to send me to him a long time ago when I was having severe depression problems from severe pain, and I told them no way!! And I'm glad I did or I probably could of turned for the worse.
Just be extremly careful, I would hate for you to get treated for something you don't have and end up with something terrible from the treatments. Always get a 2nd and 3rd opinions if someone tells you have something as severe as this doctor is telling you. Do background checks on this guy, find other patients that are not "good buddies" with this doctor and see what they have to say. Do your research, like anyone going to a new doctor should. and don't just do a local search on this doctor, do a nation wide search, he could of hurt people in other states or countries and just set up bussiness somewhere else where the court system hasnt caught up to them yet, you'll be surprised how many sketchy doctors do this....
But either way, good luck and if this doctor suggests or do anything that doesnt seem or feel right, follow your instincts cause more then likely something isnt right.
