member comment:
Saved me. If you're a CH sufferer he'll make time for you. Has lots of drug options to break a cluster and limit/prevent recurrence. It was him who pushed the Alfred to get me in for radiotherapy lesion on my facial nerve, which seems to have worked (but I'm only a few days in)... Thanks to Jacques, I think I am free of these unspeakable mongrel things... If that's not a recommednation, I dunno what it.
