Somehow, we got together. I found his name on a blog site, only Dr. in Idaho listed for CLL. I was with another medical group, and headed to St Lukes when my then primary I asked for a referral to Dr. Pulver. The rest is history. After many months of treatment, and wary recovery, I almost feel normal again. It's wonderful.

Despite the protocol supported by St Al's regarding my phlebotomy the practice level of care is fine, thank you. I have been in the vampire multi chair lab probably a total of 6 or 7 times. I historically have been able to drain 500ml of my very thick blood in an average of 6 to 7 minutes over a period of nearly 10 years.I have to request an 18 needle and it still will not flow in the bag? I would like to be in and out with one stick, one draw!!!!!!!!

Dr Pulver is a knowledgeable doctor. A very caring person, he explains situations so you can understand them. He has dealt with beast cancer (healed for last 16 rears) and also prostrate cancer which was under control for numerous years, but unfortunately this cancer came back and was not going t0 be denied and eventually did take a life. But we had more years together than what we normally would have had. I wouldn't want to go anyone else.
