Your post caught my eye because I, too, live on the West Coast. You will likely receive lots of recommendations to different doctors. I wanted to share the information on my doc who I feel is one of the best in the country when it comes to treating adhesions, endometriosis and anything/everything to do with female pelvic pain.
Dr. Andrew Cook is in Northern California. His office is conveniently located minutes from the San Jose Airport so traveling to him is an cinch. Dr. Cook has a great website, http://www.pelvicpain.com.
Dr. Cook has helped countless women, myself included, to recover from the debilitating pain that often goes along with endometriosis and adhesions.
If you're interested in discussing your case with Dr. Cook he will do a complimentary records review and subsequent telephone consultation. Dr. Cook does not contract with insurance so he would be out of network; hopefully that's not an issue for you. He is worth the time and expense in my opinion. Dr. Cook is knowledgeable and highly compassionate. He has an excellent bedside manner and a wonderful sense of humor.
If I can answer any questions for you please don't hesitate to contact me.
