Hello Everyone,
My husband David was recently diagnosed with ALS in October at Stanford. We received a second opinion from UCSF in November confirming the ALS diagnosis.

We are working with both hospitals at the present time to see which one works best for us. I would appreciate any feedback from anyone who has any experience with these hospitals. Thanks Bev Rees

Hi, Bev ... I am so sorry for your husband's diagnosed. I'm sure you will find someone on the forum with some insights about the hospitals, but I'm sure they are both top-notch.

I'm glad you found this forum. There are some remarkable caregivers here who will provide a lot of support and good information.

Take care.

Hi Beverly. I'm going to move this up to General Discussion. You might get quicker answers there.

They are excellent. Dr. Lomen-Hoerth is always reachable and very helpful.
