  • Desperate for a Doctor in South/Central Arkansas!

    I am desperate for a specialist that treats IC in Arkansas! I'm basically willing to go anywhere but the south/central area is the closest to me.. I've tried Dr. Brizzolara (the one that is listed on the IC doctor's list for Arkansas) but he just really couldn't help me! I AM DESPERATE!!! Please, if you know any doctors in this area, either post here or PM me! THANKS in advance!

      I'm so sorry but I don't know of anyone in that area. Have you checked with the ICA? When I was first diagnosed I contacted them and they emailed (maybe mailed?) me a list of doctors in and around my area. I didn't end up going with one of those doctors but I still have the list if I need it. Good luck and I hope you find someone soon.
