Navigating conflicting medical opinions to be your own advocate.
I was desperately ill when I sat down with my local specialist and described my plan for a surgery that didn’t exist. He wanted the best for me but he cautioned that pursuing my idea might end “very badly”. I was so scared. After a lot of research I found Mayo Clinic and I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. Now that he has seen my results my local Dr. even refers other patients for the same procedure. If you are visiting Mayo Clinic know it is a place of hope and healing. This is a link to my story:
