John’s Story

Lisa’s Story

“In July of 2012, I physically collapsed. I was unable to move my body for more than 5 minutes at a time. I had been covered with rashes for at least a year and no doctor was able to figure out what was wrong with me.

After many visits and blood work, my Primary Care Physician sent me to a new doctor[Dr. Charles Birbara]. He and his assistant took one look at me and they knew…I had psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

I wanted to cry because someone was actually listening to me. They took me in the next day and started me in a clinical trial. In September of 2012, I began treatments. Everyone was wonderful and so caring. I was very comfortable with everyone and have been throughout this entire process.

It has been about 6 months now and it has been a long haul but all my rashes are almost completely gone and I am able to function as a normal person. The psoriatic arthritis has calmed and I have no joint pain.

My advice…don’t wait and suffer. If this program helped me as bad as I was, it can help you too.”
