Dear Ms. Matthews,
Re: Province looks at aftercare for MS patients
I'm concerned that there are too few vascular specialists on your panel vs. neurologists, who appear to be in abundance. Perhaps a Canadian doctor (Sandy MacDonald) who has treated people for CCSVI might be included in your esteemed panel??
Sd that same Canadian neurologist wrote to his patients " Since death is also a risk, then I ask those individuals to strongly consider advising their family of an advanced directive for an autopsy. We should maximize every learning opportunity"'
