Customer Question
Our adult daughter has...

Our adult daughter has been diagnosed w/NPD2, determined by blood test w/your facility. If we were to travel to Mayo and meet w/a neurologist, might we find assistive information beyond what has been prescribed for her, i.e., Zavesca an annual appointment and nutrition--is there more that could help her? Please. Thank you.

Doctor's Assistant: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?

Her symptoms are increasing at a high rate, an annual appointment does not seem sufficient, according to the FDA, she can receive only half the original prescription, and half costs more than $1,000 a day. The test was a blood test.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

She is/was otherwise a healthy, athletic young woman; she walked the 3-Day 60-Mile for five years.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
