View Full Version : Small Success - Found IC Doctor
11-10-2004, 04:56 AM
This is a small success, but I finally found a sensitive, caring doctor in the state of CT that is an expert on IC! I ran into some seminars and articles on the internet written by her and gave her office a call. The miracle is that she accepts my insurance which almost no one accepts! She has been on panels and leading seminars to educate other doctors on IC since the late 90's. Even her receptionist was knowledgable. I feel so relieved to have found someone.

Wonderful!!! I'm so happy for you. Having a caring doctor who knows about IC can make a huge difference in how you feel -- both physically AND emotionally. She will be up on all the latest treatments, and you'll feel heard and understood, which will lead to you feeling more in control of your care. Congratulations! :grouphug:

:woohoo: Congratulations!! It is a big help to find someone that understands and LISTENS to what we are saying. I know when I finally found my doctor, who is also an IC specialist I wanted to just cry w/ relief.
Hope you feel better soon!
Jill...how do we submit a name for the list? My dr. who is on the board of directors for the IC Assn. (Dr. Robert Evans) is not listed for NC.
