Have you contacted Shands @ UF?  (Dr. Ben-David or Cendan)  I don't know that they take it, but most Shands doctors do. You can call (352) 265-0111 and ask for the office of Dr. Ben-David.

Have you had your surgery yet? If so how did it go? Can you tell what the process was leading up to surgery date and what appt and things you had to do to get approved. What type of medicaid do you need to see your Dr.? Hope your doing well. Thanks
