Here is a link to a site with a list of doctors who treat hep c

If you have advanced liver disease / cirrhosis you should look for a hepatologist associated with a liver transplant center.

Have you asked your regular doctor if they have any recommendations?

Good luck

Unless you have a reason, like endstage liver disease, or other serious chronic illnesses, you really do not need a hepatologist to treat you. Treatments are so much easier now and have a short duration, you can feel confident with a gastroenterologist or an infectious disease doctor. Here is a link to gastros in Nevada:

The doctor that treated me for 13 years and told me exactly the time I should be put on the transplant list is:

Frank Faris
702-483-5515, when you hear the message, press 4 and ask for Arlina.
He's located at 3150 N. Tenaya Way # 580 Las Vegas, NV 89128.

He's the only doctor that actually called me at home to see how I was doing...

I don't know how far you are from Mayo in Arizona, but it would be worth getting a referral. They are according to US News and World Reports the best GI/Hepatologist transplant hospital in Arizona. I would definitely check into that.
