@ling123 Thank you so much for your reply. I am seeing Dr. Cole at the clinic. I have heard good things about Dr. Ferguson and I was going to ask for him if I didn't like Dr. Cole. I do like Dr. Cole though. He spent a lot of time with me. Our situations sound very similar except my rapid smear did not come back positive. But honestly, I could not get hardly anything up and almost didn't send them in because there was so little. I am sorry you have this disease, but it's nice to have someone in the Madison area to talk to.
