Endo Doc List


The following list is a copy of the list previously located at hcgresources.com. This website has gotten express permission to duplicate the list from the owner. In the future, the appearance of the list my change as more fields for endometriosis associated doctors are added. Please read the following disclaimers. If you do not understand the disclaimer please e-mail me at EndoVictims@yahoo.com.

Finding A Doctor Who Really Can Treat Endometriosis...

...Seems like an exercise in futility. But they do exist! See Also: http://www.hcgresources.com/talktodoctor.html for an article that can help a little with some tips on how to effectively choose, and work with, a physician to treat and manage your Endometriosis. For a free pain journal, see http://www.endocenter.org/painjournal.htm.

Before reading the "List," please read the "Rules:"





Note that I do not personally phone up each and every single doctor listed herein to confirm their status, nor will I begin doing so at any point in the future. They are listed here because at least one of their patients wanted them to be. It is not my place to debate with a woman whether or not her doctor is "good" or to undertake personal screening of those herein.




This is not an Endometriosis Research Center-provided or endorsed list. They are not even remotely involved in the compilation or maintenance of this list. Please do not ask me to contact the ERC to comment on, remove or update any listings.




This is not an Endometriosis Association-provided or endorsed list. They are not even remotely involved in the compilation or maintenance of this list. Please do not ask me to contact the EA to comment on, remove or update any listings.




This is not an AOL Health/WebMD provided or endorsed list. They are not even remotely involved in the compilation or maintenance of this list. Please do not ask me to contact AOL Health/WebMD to comment on, remove or update any listings.




Doctors listed on this page are absolutely NOT being touted as excision specialists or as physicians who do not engage in GnRH usage. They are listed here by their patients because those patients had good experiences with them. Nothing more, nothing less. I have NOTHING to do with the contents of the list. It is FOR patients, BY patients.




Every effort is made to note details when applicable, but owner neither expresses nor implies any responsibility for any experience with any doctor listed herein. I absolutely cannot, do not, and will not process any screening or confirmation of details associated with listings herein beyond what a patient provides me with.




Implemented in 1996 and revised countless times since then, this list provides several referrals that have been shared over time throughout the Endometriosis community. However, it is by no means an exhaustive or complete listing of all doctors who treat Endo, and inclusion herein absolutely does not imply endorsement of any practitioners by owner.




ONLY patients can add physicians to this list. Doctors cannot add themselves to the listing under any circumstances. Unlike some sources that accept "donations" in exchange for referrals, this list is publicly available and free to access for all, and I do not accept one cent from any source for anything related to the upkeep of the list.




In the interest of patient privacy, you will not be provided, under any circumstances, with the contact information for the patient(s) who made a good or bad referral for any physician listed. Don't ask.




When complaints are received about a doctor, the physician(s) is/are marked accordingly. You will see that some physicians are marked as "removed." This is done because it is just as important to stay away from the "bad" docs, as it is to find one of the good ones.




The list is patient compiled and maintained. Details are listed exactly as they are provided, spelling errors and all.




In simple terms:
Use This List at Your Own Risk.
*This list is for information and convenience purposes ONLY*





OTHER SOURCES TO FIND A DOC:

• Go to AMA home page and click on "Physician Select" at http://www.ama-assn.org.

• You may also obtain referrals (off-list) from members of the Endometriosis Research Center EndoAngelTM or GirlTalkTM Listservs, which is the Internet's largest electronic Endo support group. The ERC Listserv has thousands of members from all over the world, where all topics related to Endo are discussed daily. To join (free, of course), please visit EndoAngelTM or GirlTalkTM. Note that you will need to give permission to be emailed privately to the Listserv members, as physician referrals are not permitted on the list. The ERC also has a NEW ListServ specifically designed for doctor referrals and discussions. To join FREE, please visit EndoDocsTM.

• Also consider joining the terrific ladies over at WebMD's Endo Board, by visiting http://boards.webmd.com/topic.asp?topic_id=29.

• You should also be sure to check out the Women's Surgery Group, which consists of pelvic surgery experts from all over the world. Their site is constantly being updated at http://www.womenssurgerygroup.com.

• You can also find a listing of practitioners who are participants in the International Pelvic Pain Society at http://www.pelvicpain.org/html/physician.html.

• And finally, be sure to check out the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons at http://www.sls.org/members/directory.html.

Note: for those who do not wish to undergo GnRH therapy, you should be advised that the following physicians are openly pro-GnRH and/or sit on various GnRH manufacturer advisory boards: Joseph Gambone, MD; Brian Mittman, MD; Malcolm Munro, MD; Anthony Scialli, MD; Craig Winkel, MD; David Olive, MD; Glenn Schattman, MD; Eric Surrey, MD. Coincidentally enough, most if not all of these same physicians also openly advocate pre-diagnostic GnRH usage, a practice which is viewed as controversial at best and unethical at worst. For more information, be sure to read http://www.endocenter.org/pdf/PreDiagnosisGnRH.pdf.



Proceed below to access complete list.






~*~*~PLEASE NOTE~*~*~

This list is NOT a list of Endometriosis Specialists or Excision Surgeons. This is simply a list of patient-recommended doctors to help other women find compassionate, knowledgable doctors. I have had many people e-mailing me to tell me some of the doctors listed are not specialists. If you read the information above, it STATES that these doctors are NOT all specialists. Most of them are great doctors with a general knowledge of the disease. All doctors should be considered 'Doctors with a general knowledge of the disease' unless otherwise noted next to their name, in bright red, that they are specialists.

NOTE: I recieved a complain about Dr. Surrey. A patient went to him in hopes of getting a second opinion which would be helpful. He reviewed her records and kept pushing for her to get pregnant. She explained to him that she did not want to get pregnant at the time and was only interested in taking care of the endometriosis. Dr. Surrey ordered a test that was to check for infertility, knowing that her insurance did not cover this. She had to shell out the cost of the test because Dr. Surrey refused to write a letter to the insurance company that the test was for endometriosis. She is now deemed as an infertile patient on insurance records and can not have any procedure that has to do with infertility covered, even though she is not infertile at all.

Daniel Stewart, MD REMOVED
Patient comment: "I went to him as a last resort and he made me feel the most helpless I have felt since I have been dealing with endo. He was not professional, he didn't ask me one question concerning my health, nor did he even examine me! I was in there for maybe five minutes and he wrote up a prescription for Danazol - which I have been told not to take. I do not recommend anyone with endo to see him."

Robert Franklin, MD REMOVED
NOTE: Dr. Franklin was removed due to patient complaints. However, on 3/5/03 I received input from another patient of his who did have a “favorable experience” with him.
UPDATE 07/09/04: I have had several women e-mailing me in shock that Dr. Franklin was removed from the list. While I have had those women e-mailing me saying that Dr. Franklin is a wonderful doctor, I have also had women e-mailing me telling me their horrible experiences. I will NOT add Dr. Franklin back to the list. However, as a patient, you must decide for yourself if this doctor will work for you.

Dr. Dub Howard REMOVED
NOTE: I have received SEVERAL messages that this doctor AND his Nurse Practitioner ("NP") BOTH have garnered reputations (from many previous patients) for having "awful bedside manners." According to notes received: This physician has "made patients cry" with his "caustic attitude and total lack of compassion;" and in addition, has become "very ill tempered" when patients ask questions or seek further details about their health. Furthermore, his NP feels that "no recovery time is needed from Lap surgery;" and has stated to patients that "women on those [Endo] Support Groups are all whining babies." I have been told that this physician and his NP "should be avoided at all costs." At the other end of the spectrum, I have ALSO received one message in support of their practice, stating that "they are BY FAR the best people I have ever worked with. I was so impressed...that I opted to use them for myself with my own upcoming surrogacy. Their bedside manner is off-kilt...they talk to you like you're old friends instead of trying to impress you and tell you what you want to hear. Sometimes it does sound crass, but they are the best in the field and the're [sic] expertise far offsets their bedside manner faults. I think it is a great injustice to the many women that could use their service to have them removed from your site." As always, you, the patient, should take both sides of the story and make your own educated decision.

Dr. Robert Shwayder
716 Denbigh Blvd.
Newport News, VA
(757)874-2790 NOTE: While I have received a couple of recommendations for this doctor, I feel it only fair to share the following from a former patient: "I had seen him for years before I started to have problems. I always loved him until the Endo diagnosis came about. He performed 2 laps on me in 10 months, didn't give me any information after my surgeries, except the total basics. I found out what actually happened from reading the op reports at the hospital. When I pushed for answers, he seemed to hesitate about what to tell me and my husband. He also wanted to give me estrogen supplements to help with my fertility, knowing that he never excised all the endo, and that it could make things even worse than before my surgeries." Another patient wanted her opposite story told: "I have been a patient of Dr. Robert Shwayder going on 9 years now. I too have endometriosis which was diagnosed 6 years ago. I have had 4 laproscopic [sic] surgery's [sic] performed by him and 3 beautiful children delievered by him. He is a wonderful doctor with an amazing bed side manner. I have done a lot of edometriosis [sic] research and people have to realize it will come back. I feel very lucky to have had 3 children and with my last surgery in May 03' I can still have a chance to have another baby ! I would like for others to know my story and that I commend and Thank Dr. Shwayder for his expertise in treating my endometriosis".
