Male Patients of Dr. Hibner & Associates

Postby xjarhead » Sat Oct 19, 2013 3:39 am

Hi guys,

I'm new to this forum and a fellow PN sufferer, being treated by (Hibner associate) Dr. Castellanos. I just found out today, Dr. Hibner & Associates will no longer be treating male patients. This policy change is not coming directly from Hibner, but is coming from the association of Obstetrics & Gynecology, where Hibner/Assoc are licensed. Existing male patients will be transferred/referred to other physicians. Additional details will be forthcoming...

I am so sorry to hear this! This is terrible for all the male patients with PN since so few doctors treat male patients! I wonder why change in policy? Please keep us updated. Maybe if this is some hospital policy it can be something we can all get together and advocate to change this.

Complete & total BS that he would only see female patients. Surely they realize that males suffer from this condition as well.
