    -San Francisco, CA |

    I traveled cross-country for his evaluation and consultation. I was completely worth it. He took extra time to make sense of my unusual case. He was clear that there isn?t enough information to know with certainty what to do, but he gave his heartfelt recommendations based on what he has been able to tease out of the science. Dr. Meisel was surprisingly sensitive about the emotional impact this disease has had on me and my family. I?ve thought about relocating to SF so I could be his patient.
