Are you from the San Francisco Bay Area too? I think Dr. Stephen Ruoss is still interested in NTM. I am a librarian and I searched for research papers on NTM from Stanford doctors and his name came up many times. After reading his papers I emailed him and asked him to attend at my appointment. He was very nice, not only emailed me back but also spent considerable time at the appt. However he is not my case management doctor. My doc is at Stanford Chest Clinic only 2x a month – that makes the whole diagnosis procedures drag out.
I’m very much interested in hearing more about Dr. Ruoss. Please give me an update whatever you find out about him!!
