I'll take a shot at answering your questions. I've heard they might be opening another clinic, so best to get your name in:
1. Dr. Simka is not taking emails/calls directly. You have to contact Euromedic who are handling all requests for appts.:
2. I've heard 2012, but not 100% sure.
3. As your appt. date approaches they ask for full payment and will give you a special account number to deposit the amount in. They asked us for payment about 2 weeks before our appointment date.
4. There were a few people there that had returned because the vein collapsed after angioplasty. They were taken back quickly, one woman was there again after 2 weeks. They charge much less to redo it - but if a stent is required of course it would be more.
5. I'm sure there is no problem cancelling if you haven't paid. Once you've paid I'm not sure - best to check with them.
6. Why not get your date? You will be waiting quite awhile anyway, but at least your name is in there. Maybe you could get in on a cancellation.
My husband was only diagnosed 9 months ago, with EDSS score of 2.5. So not far along in the disease, but it's an unpredictable road. However the sooner you do the procedure in your progression the better the results. We thought about waiting as well, but who knows where you might be health-wise in 2, 5, 10 years. Just my thoughts. Good Luck!
