My mother has CKD and has been contacted by a doctor in China who can supposedly give her treatment of some sort that isn't available in the United States.
I'm fully aware that other countries have better treatments for various illnesses than we have in the United States because they have to to through years of testing to pass through the FDA, etc etc. But this all seems too weird to me.
This Chinese doctor even gave my mother's phone number to a former patient of hers, who called my mom (left a voicemail, we weren't home) to vouch for this Chinese treatment. Which, in my opinion, is very unprofessional. I don't know doctor/patient confidentiality laws in China, but it's just plain tacky to give out people's phone numbers.
I'd love for my mother to have some miracle cure, but I'm a cautious person by nature, and I'm not going to watch my mother fall for a scam.
I searched Google but didn't find anything.
Your answers will be very appreciated.
