Recommend an "independent" 2nd opinion; two to consider are the Cleveland Clinic and, a bit farther away, OSU Medical Center. The Cleveland Clinic is an ALS Association Certified Center and OSU is also a site for the Answer ALS Project [Answer ALS - Answer ALS]

THANK YOU for this recommendation. I didn't even think about OSU (and my son went there!) - I had heard how incredible they were (Wexner, I believe) - but didn't know that were that renown in the treatment of ALS. Do you have a name of a specific doctor at the Cleveland Clinic? The only reason I ask is that I needed to go there a few times for my son and it took a few appointments to find the right doctor. With the others, we felt like we were on a cattle call and also not being listened to. I'm 'gun shy' w/docs and their personalities. It sounds immature - but I need knowledgeable and compassionate at the same time.
Thank you, Ken!
