Advice on ALS Clinic Selection?
2 years 7 months ago #4241
My father was diagnosed w/ALS earlier this month at West Virginia University (WVU). The diagnosis and recommendation to begin Radicava was so swift from WVU that I suggested he get a 2nd opinion. We had the 2nd opinion at the Cleveland Clinic last week, and they want to re-run the EMG and have done some additional blood work, but it seems that ALS will be the diagnosis. (This is still hard to accept as he is mostly asymptomatic. The EMGs done at the local neurologist and at WVU are, however, evidently compelling.)
