    Suggest getting your previous doctor involved

    Hi there,

    You mentioned you were a Shelokov patient (as am I). Not sure if Shelokov referred you to Hansen in Houston - but I would definitely get a referral from him to help find the right...

    Well - I've been out sick with that horrible cold or whatever it is that's going around. Guess it's good to get that out of the way before surgery. But now, I have a far worse problem. Do you ever...
