      Dr. Patel is located in Winter Park, FL and is pretty good. I live in Central Florida also and am trying to find any other icers for a possible support group. Let me know if you need any other information.

            Cindy, how informed is this dr about IC?? What does he do for you as far as treatment???
            I had a Uro when I moved here to Fl a year ago..and he is the biggest jerk I have ever needless to say..I now have NO uro.and have had IC for 11 yrs now and disabled because of it. I have had 19 Hydro/cystos done...that is about all that works for me to brig my pain level to somewhat *tolerable*...I have had the DSMO and other instills, Elmiron and other meds...and I just can't tolerate any of it....I have severe reactions to everything
            I am not sure where Cocoa Beach is from you know???
            You can email me personally if you [email protected] we can chat if you want.

                  I went to Dr. **** but was really disappointed. After a hydro to sufficiently rediagnose my 7-year condition (he required before treating me) he said I had a mild case but he didn't recommend meds but rather we should look into implanting an interstim. I looked it up and thought this was outrageous -- he says I'm mild and in the same sentence wants to perform a surgery that's supposedly for the most severe cases who didn't respond to anything else. This was so unrealistic!

                  I felt really powerless, angry and confused; plus like I had wasted a lot of months! I cried the entire hour and a half back home. I didn't go back which left me back at square one.

                  Too bad because he seemed very knowledgeable.

                    My amazing urogyn just moved from Atlanta to Tampa. His name is Dr. Stuart Hart. He is very knowledgable about IC. He let me do bladder instills at home. He is still listed under the Georgia docs portion of the Physicians listings, but I do have his new contact info in Tampa if you would like it.

                        Cindy, I thought you were going to try the woman uro in Orlando????
                        If you don't mind me asking..........who is the dr that was recommended to you??
                        I have had 3 bad experiences with uro's if it any one of them....I would stay away!

                          ref: Dr.


                          I was seeing Patel but stopped b/c he would not extend my trazodone given to me by a previous urologist. I am now seeing Dr. Dobkin in Orlando. When I first went the wait was not long. The last few times I have had appointments I have had to wait 30-1 hr past appt. time. He is good though. Utlimately I am hoping to find a good Dr. in Brevard. I also have an interstim implant so I have to find a urologist who also does that surgery and has medtronic representatives come out for lead adjustments.

                          Good luck!
