Customer Question
I was just looking...

I was just looking for ways to help my husband with MS. I came across the Stem Cell of America site and was just wondering if it was legit or not? He is at the point in his life that he is tired of all the pain that he has daily and none of the meds are working anymore. So now he is getting desperate and I know how places go after folks who are desperate. I know that Cleveland Clinic was doing research on stem cell and its results and had a radio personality who had it done with success. He is exhausted from all the pain and is giving up. He is 67 and tired. I thought I would try to see if there is anything out there. Thanks for listening

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

He is allergic to aspirin. He takes hydrocodone 2xday and gabapentin 00mg a day.

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

Such as?

HI

The other expert has opted out of the question.

What claim do you want evaluated.

There is no stem cell method that has proven useful in MS.

Is that what they claimed?\

If so, ask them for data. Ask them for the number of cases cured out of cases treated.

You will find they can not provide you with that.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. [This must be done manually]. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up needed.

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.

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.
