Hi,

Why would you go to Cleveland Clinic ?  If you go thru  Broward W 80  grant " easy to get"  Hook up with Dr Singh  you will get a full ride for the VERY expensive  meds.  Dr Singh is the best Hep Dr in the system

I just finished treatment .. I went from 35 M VL  to undetected in only 2 weeks. You can do this thru B Health easy , closer and get assistance Full ride Harvoni

     I too live in Wilton Manors, FL, although not for long as I will be moving to Nashville, TN.  I'm pretty much am ready for a change of seasons in weather, hardwood floors, fireplace, ( my own place )  yada, yada, yada......

     In answer to your question about seeing Dr. Castro at the Cleveland Clinic, I did see him but did not treat under him. I have to say that I wasn't that impressed with him.  Although Cleveland Clinic is highly reputable, I, for some reason, " just wasn't that impressed" with Dr. Castro.  I would possibly considered the opinion and thoughts of CHARM27's advice and maybe switch over to seeing the other Hep Dr that she mentioned there at the Cleveland Clinic.  I had my biopsy done there at Cleveland in Dec., and it was read to me in person by Dr. Castro.  I sorta felt like during my visit with him that I was "imposing" on his time....it was" sorta just a get me in there and get me outta there kind of visit"..............however, if for right now given your current situation you are able to get in to see Castro there at CC/Weston, then by all means stay there under a his care ( at least he is a Hep Dr. ) until things can get turned around for you....wishing you and yours all the best!!!!!  

In Christ,
Rick

BF has no health insurance or job. Trying to get financial assistance for him to treat at Cleveland Clinic. That's why I'm asking. Trying to get Broward County to pay for his treatment at UM. Looking less hopeful. Broward Co. will only pay for treatment in another county if the treatment is not available here. There are no hepatologists on staff at Broward public hospitals and the lab does not have capability to test cryoglobulin levels or his blood properly, but they do not consider this lack of treatment here. I'm still fighting.

no.....................but if you need a PCP Dr. Jessee Casimiro is TERRIFIC at the CC in Weston.
One in a million.
My hepatologist is at U of M.





good luck
