Hello Ladies,

The two doctors that I thought they do immune stuff. One of them the secretary called and said that they don't do specifically those immune things. She mentioned to see Michael Virro here in Toronto. Virro's clinic they don't answer the phone and there is no voice mail. She also mention LA which Ariadne mentioned to me before (Sher ? spelling) and she said also Chicago but she doesn't know the name. Do you know the Chicago one since it is little closer to me than LA. I want to look into it.

I went to Beer center and K.Pace web page. I couldn't understand their procedure. I think K.Pace is consultant and just tell you what to do. Am I right? Can you tell me if you went to either of them or read their web sites what do they do. I think I want is a place that we do all the immune blood work and then tell me what I have. Then, help me with the treatment. When I read their web sites it doesn't look like that.
Thanks

Hi Bharani:
I can only speak for LA, in that case, I would contact Acacio and just ask if he can help you remotely. I believe his team will do this for you. Let's wait for the other gals's feedback on suggested clinics.
I can not find the other "Asherman's" Dr. Maybe put two posts out:

-Recommendations for RI in NE
-Recommendations for Asherman's or Uterine specialist on NE Coast

You may get more specific responses that way.

Sending you hugs --

Minniet

Hi Minnet,

I want to go there, so that they will take the blood and analyze it. I felt I read they will tell me what to do. I don't want remotely.
Thanks

I will write more tomorrow, but the doctor in Chicago is most likely Joanne Kwak-Kim.

Have you gotten the book yet? It will address the TNF alpha testing.

Yes, Dr. Pace is a consultant & not a medical doctor who does ART herself. I think it might be worth doing in your case, since there may be multiple issues going on. Or not. (Without knowing your test results, I can't say for sure. And even if you posted the results, I'm only familiar with the RFU lab results, which the Beer Center & Dr. Kwak-Kim both use. I think Dr. Scher in NYC does, too, but I can't say for sure. Maybe cotton knows.)

More later!

The immune and thrombophilia they take, and then they send to Chicago, to a special lab that can perform the assays properly for their standards. You can do that remotely. For uterine eval, that's different. Acacio uses a Doppler, but he is not a uterine evaluation specialist.

Maybe just do the bloodwork part and have him guide you from there. They may even be able to recommend a uterine eval.

Hi Ariadne,

I tried to get the book from their web site but then I said I might get it from bookstor. I will order from them tonight. I have had two family issues one that you know and another one my oldest brother, he is not tha old ~ 50 years old got stroke on Monday.

Can you answer me this question.

1. Sher or Chicago, can they do the blood work or at least draw the blood from me? The part I see I find to be difficult for me is telling me what to do but then where I will do or telling me to send the blood somewhere. I want a place that take the blood from me and then take care of it.

Thanks Ariadne

he's different than geoffrey sher. sounds like the other gals have good advice. i can recommend johnathan scher just because you get all your immune testing in one place.
