If possible, I will answer your factual questions. Sometimes I will suggest that you ask your physician for a referral to a specialist, but I can not give direct medical advice. It is not wise to make treatment recommendations for an individual person because I don't know all the medical details. With bone diseases, it is important to treat each person on a unique, individual basis.
Furthermore, any data, including email addresses or visitors to the site, will be confidential. I do save the email messages that praise the site.
This site will not place any cookies or keep track of individual visitors to the site. I will attempt to answer email messages but will not send these messages to anybody else.
I have a counter that gives me the numbers of visits, but I do not collect any information from visitors to this site.Updated 5/15/09
