Catherine’s Story

“Dr. Driscoll has absolutely remarkably, just been like a forensic detective, and given me the first bit of hope that I have had in a really long time.” Catherine came to POTS Care from England after suffering for 49 years. Catherine has had 31 surgeries in her life and had been diagnosed with POTS, EDS, MCAS, diverticulitis, and cancer. After a thorough review of previous records and new testing, we were able to locate underlying conditions contributing to her illness and give her a solid plan to control it.”

INTERVIEWER: Thank you for talking with us today, Catherine. Can you tell us a little about your journey?

PATIENT: I have spent probably over 40 years seeing many, many, many consultants and physicians and nutritionists and chiropractors, and almost everybody that you can see. At one point, I was under 13 different consultants, all of whom were supposed to be brilliant at their different aspects of my body and nobody, nobody, nobody has come anywhere near being as professional and as thorough as Dr. Driscoll.

INTERVIEWER: Were we able to find anything that other doctors have previously missed?

PATIENT: By coming here I have had everything that I suspected confirmed, but I could not get anybody to agree with me before. Dr. Driscoll has absolutely remarkably, just been like a forensic detective, and given me the first bit of hope that I have had in a really long time. I know that without Dr. Driscoll I would be probably heading for another stroke and various other very unpleasant things that I have already had.

INTERVIEWER: What would you say to people who are considering coming to POTS Care?

PATIENT: So if any of you out there are sitting on the fence and wondering whether it is worth it, let me tell you that it is the best money that I have ever spent and it is the best value for money and it will be the greatest investment that you will ever, ever make in your precious life. So, please go for it and get on that plane or get in the car and come and see Dr. Driscoll. Caitlin and Michelle look after you beautifully and they will just do everything within their means to help you professionally, medically, integratedly, and they will also ask you how you are actually doing. So there is no single aspect of you that would not be supported.
