Hi Anna,

This link might help you. http://www.drdavidgoldmeier.co.uk/index.html
Looks like primarily medication and psychological treatments. Not sure what it means that he does "physical" treatments.

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.

Thank you Violet. I'm hoping for some personal information too - sometimes these self-styled experts aren't as good as they make out. Anna

Well, I believe I met him at a medical conference and few years back and my impression was that he truly cares about women with PGAD. I think your main consideration is what types of treatments do you wish to pursue and whether he offers those treatments. It sounds like he could at least help you manage your medications for symptoms.
