Thanks for the welcome mat. Most of 2009 I saw Dr Shea at UCLA. He is a partner with Dr. Graves. I did not feel particularly good with Dr Shea. I know that they are good but they seem to focus more on teaching interns than treating patients. There is a Dr with Encino Nureo Group in the San Fernando Valley who I have heard is very good. I tried to see him but the staff would not let me because I had already seen another nureo in the group. I’m currently seeing a oncology/hematologist in Valencia Ca. who I think is great. He ordered Rituxan for me and in 2 weeks it was approved. If you need some specific info let me know.
I am being seen at UCLA on Nov. 9th, my Neuro Doc is Dr. Perrin Plenninger, My neuro here in Orange Couny Calif cannot figure out exactly what is going on with me, I have been sick for several months, I am worried too about what damage is being done to my nerves, I am numb from head to toe. I have done a lot of research on Dr. plenninger and asked people in the UCLA neurology dept. Who they would see, check this Dotor out online. Good luck with your appt. At UCLA, let me know what they say. Blessings, Jan
