He only diagnoses and sees 18 patients per year....testing i heard was 10k
I couldnt agree more
I know about 5 people treated by Dr KDM. They were all told they have Lyme. Also, these people know other people and the same results. Some live on Brussels. I should have used the word Many, not every. Forgive me, English is my 4 th language.
I don't like bombastic arrogant doctors. I prefer a quiet fellow. Neither do I want some deep relationship. I expect proper diagnosis, treatment, careful follow, and a doctor who is not running a " mill". I also expect and here is where we have found difficulty, I expect that when something goes wrong with a treatment, that the physician face and address this, regardless whether it's a blood draw, a reaction to a tablet or anything else. This is where I found problems, when something goes wrong.
what are enteroviruses? are they related to lyme?
re SIBO treatment, does he always rx BOTH rifaxin and flagyl?
Not always. Only if it's constipation dominant. Otherwise it's just rifaxamin I believe.
No, they are a common RNA virus passed easily through casual contact. Poliovirus is one of the most well known enteroviruses. They have been found to persist in humans for long periods of time and have been linked to ME in numerous studies.
what's a dna virus?
Herpes viruses would be an example of DNA viruses.
what's an rna virus? what's the difference btwn the two?
In DNA viruses, the viral genome is composed of DNA, similar to that in the nucleus of our own cells. DNA viruses have to be transcribed into RNA first and then translated into proteins, whereas RNA viruses can often be translated directly as they closely resemble our own mRNA. The outcome is essentially the same (the cell is infected, viral proteins are produced, and the virus replicates), it just has to do with the complexity of getting there.
Hi! How long did it take for the results?
Not long. About a week I think.
OK !thank you. I'm going to see Dr K in April and I want to schedule how many days I need to stay in the city.
I do not know exactly how to post here and create a subject. But would you like to know if any of you feel pain in your body or just fatigue? I feel a lot of pain besides all the symptoms. I have consultation with Dr. K in April 2017, do you guys think he can help me with the pain?
I'm going to see Dr. KAufman, soon. Would you like to know how much you spent on exams?
Hello! I would like to know how much money on average spent on exams? And how long do you think it is necessary to stay in the city for meetings and examinations?
I read that now regular gastroenterologist can order a SIBO test so it is covered by your medical insurance
Hello Erica, I would like to see Dr. Kaufmann next year too. Did you make you appointment recently? I was wondering about how long is waiting time for new appoitments these days.
