Something to share
« on: June 05, 2008, 03:48:33 pm »
Hey all!

I just wanted to share with you how pleased I am by the attitude of the doctors and assisting personnel in House Ear Institute, CA, USA.

I just called them last night to ask for a telephone consultation and today Dr House called me back!
Now we are communicating via e-mail.

Has anyone already met with this doctor?

Best wishes,

I haven't dealt with the House Ear Clinic but many have and you can see part of the reason they have such a splendid reputation.

I hope everything continues to go as smoothly as you pursue a solution to your AN problem.  Thanks for the update and please keep us informed as to your progress.

4.5 cm AN diagnosed 5/06.  Retrosigmoid surgery 6/06.  Follow-up FSR completed 10/06.  Tumor shrinkage & necrosis noted on last MRI.  Life is good. 

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.  The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.

Hrissy -

thanks for letting us know what's going on with you.  It's been a while and I was wondering how you are.

I don't have any personal experience with HEI, but they do have an excellent reputation.

I am glad to hear you are communicating with Dr. House and I am hopeful that he will be able to help you. 

Please keep updating us on things as they move along.

Best wishes,

I don't actually "make" trouble..just kind of attract it, fine tune it, and apply it in new and exciting ways
