Dr. Cherny--good at diagnosing my platelet problem and monitoring ever since the mid 80's. When I was in the hospital he still was able to monitor it by sending a colleague to the hospital.

They sent her home on the 28th still sick, vomiting, fever of 102.1, with influenza a, and she ended up passing out behind the wheel of her car and having a head on automobile crash. She was rushed to Crouse and luckily is recovering slowly. I am having a hard time grasping WHY her doctor would send her away in that condition and 100% blame and his whole practice for this. This was avoidable in so many ways. Beyond poor care.
