    Can anyone recommend some doctors who they've worked with who REALLY understand methylation and do phone consults. I got a doctor off of a mthfr finder, but I think that i may need a second opinion.

    Aside from Yasko and Dr Ben, who are the best?

    Thanks

    I think docs who will do computer appointments need to see you first, and then once or twice a year followup. My first appointment was in her office but all the rest have been with FaceTime.

    You didn't say where you were BTW, that would help.

    I saw a doc in CT. He is a mthfr doc but seems to not be as knowledgeable about it as I hoped (I could certainly be wrong)

    I would think there was someone who would just do a phone consult.

    I might be wrong but I thought there was some law that docs had to see a patient first. I'm sure someone will chime in about that.

    There is someone in Beverly Hills I think. I forget her name. Try Googling Methylation Beverly Hills.

    I really like my doctor in Colorado. I, too, wonder if he's fully up or only partially up... but under his treatment I've had dramatic improvements before a second crash. And I'm currently recovering from that crash. I've only seen him via Skype/phone conferences. I am planning a trip next month, though to drive out and meet him face to face.

    Started a conversation with you FYI Not sure my Dr is expert, but I think he knows some of it.

    GG

    PS Unfortunately he does not take much for insurance, and is mostly on a cash basis. FYI

    I pay out of my pocket for my doc too. Worth it IMO

    Mine doesn't file insurance, but does give me the filing codes so I could file... but he's helping me because the money I'm spending on him is preventing far more money being spent for tests that weren't helping me... I have yet to max out my deduction, so I haven't filed any of them since I started seeing him. But keep holidng it in resserve for just in case.

    I'm on Medicare. They don't pay for naturopaths and are pretty restrictive with what they will pay for.
