"Educate a Doctor - Anonymously (or not)"
 
LAST EDITED ON Mar-08-10 AT 10:17 AM (CST)
 
Many people post frustration abut feeling that they know more about herpes than their doctors. Here are some fact sheets you can bring with you on your next visit or mail to your doctor's office anonymously. I can't guarantee results but it's worth a try...

Testing and other information, for and by doctors (thanks windy!)-
www.herpesdiagnosis.com

Blood tests specifically:
http://www.herpesdiagnosis.com/blood.html

http://www.ashastd.org/pdfs/HerpesBloodTestGuide.pdf
- includes info re: POCkit test (now called biokit or Sureview HSV Rapid Test) which provides HSV2 diagnosis in 10 minutes)

For basic info:
http://www.cdc.gov/std/Herpes/STDFact-Herpes.htm
http://www.cdc.gov/STD/treatment/2-2002TG.htm#GenitalHerpes

Comprehensive piece: http://www.fda.gov/fdac/features/2002/202_herp.html

Comprehensive pieces available in english as well as the following foreign languages:
http://www.herpesalliance.org/
French
Chinese
Japanese
Spanish
Portuguese

Pick and choose what you send carefully. The more you send the LESS likely it will be read.

The Dr. Sacks article at http://www.racoon.com/herpes/sacks/ which could also be printed out.

There's also the CME course on herpes at http://www.medscape.com/viewprogram/1990

   I had a thought... I read somewhere, but can't remember exactly that even though a DR orders the right test, the lab may not give the IGG test but still give the old one.. So maybe a few printed versons of the accurate tests dropped off at blood testing labs and Hospital labs might help too!

   Good idea, PB!

It can't hurt to bring this list with you when you go to the doctor's office or lab. You can just say, "which of these is the one I'm getting?" to start the conversation.
