Dr. Noel,
I saw you last year before I had to leave to take care of my mother in MA. I am here taking care of her here in San Diego. I am doing the metacrin and clearvite-sf protocol that you recommended again. I would like an appointment scheduled to check in and get back on track.

Thank you,

Hello Dr. Noel,
I am concidering an appintment with you. I am 54 live in Idaho and have recently been diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosis. My GYN had no clue what it was so I went to my dermatologist and he confirmed what I had found by searching the internet. It appears not to many doctors know about this and from what I have found from the lichen Sclerosis forum There are alot of us that are suffering with this and can not find help. In my research I have found it says it could be autoimmune diseases, stress, lack of sex hormone, what I do not understand is the youngest I have read about is a girl 3 years old. and the oldest has been in their 70’s. I was listening to your radio show/podcast with Dr. Thomas OBryan abut Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity and was wondering do you have any idea if this could be a factor in Lichen sclerosis? The only method we are being told to use is steriod ointments and some with hormones, and it sounds like with out much luck! Any information would be greatly appreciated and I really think we need to bring this to the public, it may not be a pleasent topic but it appears to me many women (and men) are suffering from this without being diagnosed correctly. Please if you do not know much about this will you take a look at it? Thank You for your Show and Podcast! You have great guests!! Carlene

Our daughter is a college student who lives in Upland, CA and was recently diagnosed “hypothyroid” and started on Synthroid by our local family medicine MD…our daughter is vegan and we would like her to see you for consultation as to correct management, as she is still having symptoms that are concerning. She does not want to do a skype appt and would rather see you in person but she will have difficulty getting to your office during the Mon-Friday hours, with the commute/traffic. Do you have flexibility for in-person appts beyond the stated hours on the website? If not, what about “holidays’ like Veterans’ Day (when she is out of college). Please advise. Thanks, Trish
