I agree that it is frustrating that many docs that we, as patients, depend on seem to be failing us. But just because they don't believe TODAY, doesn't mean they won't come around when more evidence becomes available.
I think it is unfortunate that big names like John Richert are not being in the least bit open minded. I think that eventually they will regret their knee-jerk initial responses. So we will steer clear of people like him.
There are more and more doctors who are learning about CCSVI and becoming interested in getting involved. Let's do all that we can to support these open-minded docs.
We don't need to waste our time vilifying the shortsighted ones. Just ignore them.
Take all of the passion that you are obviously feeling and channel it into positive actions. Give the finger to the "naysayers" by hosting a party for Buffalo! That's what my friends and I are doing. That will show them!
Go Team CCSVI!
