needing a specialist for liver transplant
my daughter has hep c, advanced liver disease....to  much scar tissue to heal, and hepatic encephalopathy.
i am trying to find a specialist in the philadelphia area that would care for her, and put her on a transplant list.
is this possible with only madicare's access plus?
please, am i just wasting my time?  she has been "clean" for almost a year.  is going to mental health.  had a tox screen that was clear of unperscribed drugs.
she is having so much pain from lactulose that she refuses to take it any longer.  it's been 9 moths of agony for her on this drug.  and she's not that much better anyway.
we really need to find a good doctor to care for her.  i won't go into the horrible care she had been receiving.
please who do i call regarding this urgent problem?
what web site?
thank you,

I'm sorry for what your daughter and you are going through. Have you tried the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. UPMC, To find a doctor or make an appointment call 1-800-533-8762.

You need to go back to "Forum" then to liver transplant, to "Ask a Doctor" make your post there. A doctor and other people can get you more advice.

I hope i've helped,

Bob
