Dear Ginni: I would like to know where Dr. Camran Nezhat is located. I think you mentioned him in your last e-mail, but I seemed to have misplaced it. If you also have a telephone number and address I would really appreciate it. I do know for a fact that Dr. Reich is one top-notice surgeon. Beverly has spoken very highly of him and if she gives her Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, he has GOT to be okay!!! I will be trying to go to him hopefully by this summer IF he will take my insurance and IF the rest of his fee is nominal. Otherwise, I may need to use your doctor. Let me know. Laura
