Change Doctors?
Hi, thanks to all of you for the supporting comments you have posted on this forum.  Great News, Indy!

I have been monitored by a nice, busy GE for 11 years; in all that time, he has treated only about 12-15 patients w/HCV, only one of whom had a really bad time before me.  I surprised him... I think my adverse event in May/June was due in part to not enough access to my doc, so problems were not caught early.  Aside from what we learned, that 4 weeks is a total loss, and it was no picnic.
There is another GE group in town that seems to be the magnet for HCV patients; they have participated in a trial, and have had a local support group.      
I just started w/Peg shots (#1 last night), am to add Ribavirin gradually w/lots of blood checks.  But every time we turn around, my doc has to call S-P for advice.  And the 48 weeks only starts after I get up to full speed...
Has anyone else changed doctors after starting tx?  If so, how?
