    Dr. Broad is an excellent Dr. who has always been kind, patient and informative. It is 09/23/19 and I kindly need to speak with him asap. Please inform me of his number or e-mail. It is of extreme importance. I was doing fine maintaining the barretts until hurt by no fault of my own in 2018. My last scope showed my dedication to taking care of myself however since hurt, I tried to maintain that great health but sadly been forced to take Advil at times , although I try not to the pain has been unbearable. I had to have hip surgery in July this year, a bursectomy from impacts and for a year and a half am a nervous wreck, exhausted, in constant pain. I feel pain behind my belly button and bough has changed. I know only Dr. Broad can advise me what to do. I am scarred. I trust his recommendation on how to handle this. I am always at either PT, doc appointments, ptsd, cognitive for post concussion etc. But, need his input please and if safe to get my scope. Casandra Marchiano
