Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?

Expert:  wieyedoc replied 11 months ago.

what city in Texas are you located in?

How far can you travel for care and an Rx?

Will you be paying cash or do you have insurance coverage?

Do you have copies (or are they available) of your medical records showing that you were on marinol in the past?

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
