Doc: Allan Frankel, MD info@GreenBridgeMed.com his website has tons of info.

If you do talk with him, I'd love to hear how it goes.

I don't record support group meetings because I think it detracts from offering a safe place to be candid. some people that attend don't want their work or even their family to know they have spondylitis. not long ago, having a AS Dx meant that you could not get private insurance.

But, I will put on a webinar on this topic and that will be archived on YouTube.
