Heptologists are hep specialists. The best doctor I ever went to was the infamous Dr. Ira Jacobson in NYC. He doesn't take insurance but you can do out of network and for anybody with a serious liver problem I would say at least get a second opinion from him as he offered to consult with my regular GI doc and guide him in my particular case.
Dr. Teperman at NYU.
Dr. Ray Chung at UMASS
Dr. Adful in Boston (can't remember the hospital)
Don't know anyone in CT.
Dr Afdhal in Boston. One of the best hepatologist in the world. he is one of the only places you can get a FibroScan.
Usually lesions on the liver are NON-cancerous. Most are just hemanginomas a benign mass. The MRI is the right next step to diagnose.
Dr. Wu at UCONN Medical Center. Head of the department. I would stay away from Dr. Jonathan Israel. I used him for the first 4 months and he and his staff's incompetance drove me crazy. They were so bad I had to switch mid-treatment.
Thanks for the very helpful input, much appreciated!!!!
