  • IC Specialists in Dallas Ft. Worth area

    Can anyone one recommend an IC Specialist in the Dallas/ Ft worth area? My urologist is excellent with prostate issues, but has little knowledge of Interstitial Cystitis.
    Thanks, Jack

    There aren't many real IC specialists anywhere. However, you may be able to find a urologist who has at least several IC patients. When I was first diagnosed I was my uro's first IC patient --- he took steps to learn about IC and took care of me for thirty years before he retired. I miss him terribly even though my new uro is also familiar with IC and she does listen to me.

      Hi,

      I lived in Fort Worth for a few years and I saw Dr. Vernon Price. He did a good job for me. I think there is also a Dr. Michael England in Ft. Worth.

      Here is the link that tells you some of the Drs. in the Tx Region....http://www.ic-network.com/md/listings/Texas.html

      Good luck, I sure miss Dr. Price since I have moved back to IA.

        I used to see a gyno in *****. He is very knowledgeable about IC and the treatments. I quit seeing him only because his business staff was rude to me. We had an insurance problem and she came into the room while I was having a procedure done and began to demand payment for services. It was so humiliating and he didn't stand up for me. I always partly felt like he related better to men. PM me if you want his name and contact info.

        There is a Dr. Hassell in Richardson who is also very knowledgeable.

        Dr. Carley with Baylor in Dallas is a women's med specialist/urogyno but he is tremendous with IC and there are some men who see him. He is my current IC doc along with my pain doc.

        Good luck with your search!

          momw/ic, it may very well be that the doctor preferred to deal with staff privately about their coming into a treatment room.

            I have heard good things about Dr. Carley...I don't see him, but I live in the Oklahoma City area and have read some things about him.

            Also if you don't have any luckw ith Dr's in your area, there is a GOOD IC Dr. In tulsa Oklahoma.

            His Name is Dr. Forrester. I think he's an IC Specialist and I have heard nothing but good things about him.

              Honestly, you should have no problem finding a good Dr. in the Metroplex. I have to say some of the best Dr.s I have ever had for medical and personal issues were down there.

              That was one of the few things I miss about being in TX were my great Drs.

                We moved here 6 years ago from rural Arkansas and while I miss those Ozark mountains I am so thrilled to have the healthcare that we have here in the metroplex.

                I need to highjack this thread for a sec and make a correction..in my first post about the doc whose staff was rude I put he was a gyno. He is not. He is a urologist. His partners see mostly men and that is partly why I got the vibe from him that he might have a better natural bedside manner with men. On the staff thing...this was an issue we round and round about with him. It got to where my husband would go with me to my appointments so he could intercept her. He finally told her and the doc that all financial matters needed to be discussed only with him so that I would not be so stressed leading up to my appointments. They agreed and then the first appointment I went to alone she came in the room while I was being cathed. So while I would have loved to think that the doc was dealing with his staff privately...he wasn't and he lost a lot of patients because of this lady.

                When I am looking for a doctor his staff can make it or break if for me. If he is really terrific I can overlook some staff problems but overall it is the staff that we patients deal with on a daily basis. I had another instance years ago that was opposite. The doc wasn't that great but his staff was amazing and made him look really good. He had a great practice because of it! Anyway, I am all for giving someone the benefit of the doubt but I just needed to throw that in about that other doc. And I am sorry if I overstepped by putting his location. I didn't realize that is not allowed. However, in that area alone there are about 50 different uros so it would be relatively difficult to point fingers using that alone.

                Good luck with your search!

                  I really can't help you as I live in the Austin area. But if you want to travel to here, there is a Dr. Bruce who practices in/around Austin. I was a patient of his for awhile, but with my other health issues they really couldn't help me so I went back to my regular Uro. All the doctors, PA's nurses, etc know about IC. Good luck with your search, but I think living in the area you do you should be able to find one.

                    Re: IC Specialists in Dallas Ft. Worth area

                    I know this is an old thread, but I recently went to Dr. Carley and he diagnosed me with Overactive Bladder Syndrome instead of IC. I went to him based on the good things said about him on here. He looked at my bladder with a cystocopy and said that it wasn't as red and inflamed as an IC bladder. I just want to ask if you think I should get a second opinion. I feel like I have a lot of the symptoms of IC. I'm following the diet, starting physical therapy and started on Bladder Ease yesterday. I'm just frustrated as my symptoms seem like they're getting worse. Although I don't want it to be IC, I feel like my symptoms align more with that condition. Any tips?? Should I go see Dr. Hassell or someone else to get a second opinion?
