Can anyone refer me to a liver specialist in the L.A. area?  One I could see right away.  I currently have an appointment for my husband but not until November....He really needs one right now...any suggestions? referrals? confused

Nikki, are you limited to certain doctors in a network by your insurance?  If he is able to see any hepatologist, perhaps you could get a few names from the UCLA Transplant Center (not necessarily of ones there, but elsewhere.)  If nobody here can make any suggestions and UCLA is no help, you may just need to pick someone out of the phone book at random.  However, it is always better to get a recommendation from someone.

I’ve seen this Hepatologist recommended on the Internet.  He is located just outside Los Angeles.  I personally don’t know anything about him.  Hope this helps.
