ON LINE PETITION RE: MALE PATIENTS AND ABOG

Up and coming news about new ideas, new forums, and other suggestions that we plan to implement in the near future

ON LINE PETITION RE: MALE PATIENTS AND ABOG

Postby nervyjoe » Mon Dec 16, 2013 7:48 am

Please visit this link and sign the petition:

http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/the-american-board-of-obstetrics-and-gynecology-seek-a-plea-of-reconsideration-allowing-board-certified-gynecologists-to-treat-male-patients-who-suffer-from-pelvic-pain-pudendal-neuralgia

Plan is to include the results as part of a petition/package to be sent to ABOG in hopes they will reconsider allowing for gyno's to treat male patients.

This is clearly very important and for many people this could be life changing for the better or if the ABOG does not change their ruling, for the absolute worst.

Please help us and sign the petition!!!!

Thank you very much for your support ladies! These first few signature will be instrumental to our success.

we already have 11 signatures and some very passionate, convincing comments in the lower section of petition.

We're just getting started here

Hopefully we'll get more and more people looking at this.

You're welcome, Joe. Hopefully we'll have enough signatures in time for them to overturn their decision.
Just wondering ....
Does anyone know what the consequences are for having your Board Certification revoked?

Mods/Directors:
Is there any way we can post this petition front and center on the Home page?
Thanks,
Karyn

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.
