  • Dr. Towbin

    Lisa, thanks for your help with my son Brandon and the discussion about his defibulator. I'm a little anxious to speak with Dr. Towbin and just double checking that you received my fax and was able to send Brandon's records and Ben's autopsy to him. Have you heard from him? How long do you think it will take before I hear from him? Do I need to contact him myself? I understand he is very busy. I'm just very nervous about all of this. Thanks again.

    I would call Dr. Towbin in the morning, ifhe has not read the records he/ his office should be able to give you a timeframe as to when they will get to it.

        Lisa, Dr. Rhee is contacting Dr. Towbin for me with a second opinion. I have talked to Dr. Towbin's nurse who has informed me that he will not give a second opinion to me, but will give one to Dr. Rhee. Thanks again for all your help.

          That is fine. If you want to see him for a second I am sure he would do that..but over the phone doctors like to talk to doctors.
          I hope to be returning calls soon...my voice is gone again
