My scan was cancelled by Dr Haacke too. I just think Dr Haacke is overwhelmed and doesn't have enough $$$. I hope that Dr Mehta can set up a study in Albany !! The more varied studies to confirm or refute CCSVI the better. If the Buffalo results are positive then the naysayers will say that the study was contaminated by the close relationship between Dr Zamboni and Dr Zivadinov. Let's give a big hooray for Dr Mehta !! I googled him and I am impressed by his credentials !!!!!
Megan is Dr.Mehta's nurse not his secretary. She also happens to be my neighbor and close friend. I was diagnosed two years ago. I have been talking to Meg about CCSVI as soon as I heard Dr. M treated someone. She understands how important this is to us and is keeping me informed on how the study is being set up. Meg is an awesome nurse and is collecting ads much info on CCSVI and MS as she can. JenCece wrote:kc wrote: I called this morning and have left my contact info with his secretary, Megan.
What a small small world we live in, huh? That is awesome (not awsome that you have MS )... and what are the chances??? Do you plan on seeing Dr. Mehta and testing/treating ccsvi?? Thanks for posting Jen.. please keep us updated if you can... or if it is ok with Megan and the Dr.?Jen570 wrote:Cece wrote:Megan is Dr.Mehta's nurse not his secretary.

Give this to Megan .. I doubt Buffalo will share their testing protocols since they will begin charging for testing soon, but you never know.

We've exchanged only a few e-mails and she seems really nice.. I'm on yet another "list".. hopefully this one will pan out !!! Who knows, maybe you can help us out with some "Albany" insight - like maybe where to stay, eat ect. during our "hopefully" soon visit..
My mistake! She sounds like a wonderful person to be involved in all this.Jen570 wrote:Meg is an awesome nurse and is collecting ads much info on CCSVI and MS as she can. Jen
I told a friend today about my being on the list for Mehta's study and she started crying! Happy tears.
I hope this happens.
Dr.Mehta is a wonderful doctor and person. His office is fabulous to deal with. My father participated in a AAA study through Dr. Mehta's office and did wonderfully.
I have known Megan forever. I could throw a rock out my window and hit her house. LOL! She is keeping me up to date and I will pass on what I can.
I will help anyone who is coming into the area find a nice hotel. I live about ten miles outside Albany. It is a beautiful area, I have lived here all my life. Hotels are very affordable. Hugs, Jen
You can also tell Meg that my website msliberationusa.com has a downloadable PDF that is 85 pages long and is full of information on the topic. It is like the one stop shop for CCSVI.
I actually am the one who put Dr. Mehta in touch with Dr. Haacke. I believe he is attending the workshop on the 7th.
A small world indeed!!
Anyway, glad to hear folks think so highly of Dr. Mehta... It would be a refreshing change to see some genuine compassion from a doc... as my experiences have not been very good lately...
It still amazes me how we all have access to instantanous information via the web... the world is really shrinking...
Thanks for your help... this must have all just been "meant to be"... unbelievable!!!!!
@ Kacey - awesome is an understatement
Also Jen, I tried to email you personally but found no way to do that, I would like to ask you some questions about Albany, but think it is more appropriate to do so on a private email. My email is in my profile if you wouldn't mind an exchange? Thanx,
Jen, are you at all familiar with this hotel, would you recommend it?
I am also wondering about more logistics...will Dr. Mehta's team be able to bill this to insurance? Will the study have inclusion/exclusion critera, so that being on the list might not mean getting in? Is it still a reasonably sized list? It's okay if you can't answer these!!
I like what I've read here about Dr. Mehta as a doctor and that he's learned from Dr. Dake directly. I know others have said it but I agree: Kacey, you led the way, you helped not just your husband but the rest of us too, you are an angel. And Jen, what a crazy coincidence that you turn up here, we are fortunate to have you here.
