No sir,
I have hepatologist in Dallas
 I met Dr. Galati  2007 in Houston during a trial. Peg int/ riba.
He did my liver biopsy. And he saw me thru the trial 48 weeks. It was not a success. Galati speaks globally about liver health. Also has a great team working with him. Transplant specialist also.  I am ever so waiting on medication pre approval or last denial. Support Path is working with me to get the meds.

Like my GI Doc says. Good to see a hepatologist once a year or my case if he was close every 6 months. You never know when you may need a new liver.
Hope this was helpful. Have a great day. John
