I posted this on "medical questions" board too...
I had my initial appointment with Dr. J in SC last Friday (April 11) but was disappointed that he'd charge $2000 a month for contract if I want to do IV treatment with him. This fee doesn't include any IV abx and medical supplies...
I asked if Dr. J could prescribe IV abx and I'd work with my local doctor to monitor me, of course I'd pay Dr. J any phone consult fee if I have any questions or need additional help, and Dr. J said NO...My insurance co. covers a portion of IV abx and supplies, but right now I don't know what IV abx to use
How have you handled this with Dr J if you are on IV treatment with him?
Thanks a lot!!!

Is this the Dr. J. that used to be in N.C. If so, I could understand him saying NO. He has been burned badly.
I am going to Dr J on May 6. I wanted to see if he can help but i am not sure i can trust someone who is charging a contract fee if that is what it is. I am hoping he can help and will keep an open mind. It is already costing me more than what i can afford to go see him since there is no insurance for him. I cannot find a doctor that can do the IV. I had one do it for two weeks and started feeling better but he quit and the rest say there liscence will not allow this. I am in the same boat as you. Keep me up to date and i will do the same.
