      The professional guidelines recommend pet with fdg when Tg rises but RAI imaging is negative.

          I guess the header title should read: How was your thyroid cancer found?

            From first had experience, the difference between the FNA from my surgeon to the FNA at Van Rad with the radiologist was huge!  My surgeon was an awesome surgeon but his FNA skills were a little sloppy.  The radiologist was smooth as silk though.  I could tell he does these FNAs all day long. Good luck to you!

                NUHW calls on Justice Department to investigate Kaiser Permanente’s long wait times, paper wait lists, and falsified appointment records https://nuhw.org/nuhw-calls-justice-department-investigate-kaiser-permanentes-long-wait-times-paper-wait-lists-falsified-appointment-records/ I guess not much changes there.

                  She lives in my town!  And Vancouver Radiologists takes ALL insurance and if they don't will give you a discounted rate, with a payment plan with zero interest.  Yep, we work hard and spend a lot of money on that "wonderful" coverage.

                    All you have to do is ask.  How many FNAs do you perform a day? a week? a month?  Ask.  Don't assume...or rely on online reviews.

                      If you want to sit and wait until july for a simply FNA, that is your choice.  And I cannot understand an insurance that gives a patient ZERO choices.
