I live in Birmingham Alabama;
I cannot afford the 2500 to go see Dr. Norman in Tampa, hell they wont even resond to my emails until I send them 1700 and were rude about that, and had no compassion when I told them how sick I was and had no extra money....basically I got a big bugger off.
I do not want exploratory surgery, I only want the MIRP. My sestamibi was negative and none here will even talk about the MIRP unless they can see it on the scan... I was going to the VA...but care there, well, its not care.
So, I have BCBS now and I want a good endocrinologist and a good surgeon within 200 miles of Birmingham that will do MIRP with no FNA or positive sestamibi scan....blood test tells the tale, and been sick for 10+ years.
Having a real problem here finding anyone that will do what Dr. Norman says he will. Too bad I cant afford Tampa...that's the thing about being sick....NO MONEY.
Seems like Dr. Norman should let you pay him, after he gets you well enough to work, just my opinion.
