Doc I want to approach my infectious dis. doc and convince him to let me try ivig for my igm deficiency because of a small study that was done showing its helpful with infections, whats the best way to ask him so he'll honor it?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
One small study may not be enough. In addition, payment for this treatment will be expensive. So unless you pay for this yourself, medical insurance companies may not authorize it, regardless of what the doctor says.
