I have been very fortunate. My local dermatologist after 4 years of treatment became concerned that he may have something different than he originally diagnosed.However, he needed expert evaluation of his concern. His search was satisfied at Northwestern Medicine who evaluated his biopsy and thought it could be a Lymphoma. He then asked if I would be able to go there for further testing and evaluation. I agreed and Dr. Guitart arranged for an appointment from where the diagnosis was revised to Sezary and my treatment to overcome this disease began immediately, thank God.
