Audrey, we can post Doctor names with good comments. We just can't post a name with bad comments. because of legal issues the forum administrator has had to deal with in the past. Blessings!

Thank you. I called a few more today. I've got state insurance, so not many accept it.
Hopefully I'll get my appointment sooner than later, and be on my way to more answers. This is frustrating, Im only 24 years old. Never imagine to be going through this all.
My aunt got Lupus after her RAI treatment too. I wish I could discover some connection between the two and be rich. It's one thing to be sick but another to be sick and poor, and Im getting sick and tired of being sick, tired and poor.
