I too live in San Diego and have pain in my scapula that must be TMS. But since I haven't been able to eliminate it, I am interested in therapy. On 2013-02-01, I called Dr. John Sarno's office at 212-263-6035, but a recording said that he was retired and forwarded me to Dr. Ira Rashbaum's office at 212-263-6477. I pressed 0 to speak with a receptionist. She seemed relatively uneducated and extremely unhelpful. She said that Dr. Rashbaum is the only one who knows TMS and that whenever people like me call to ask if he knows anyone else who knows about TMS in some other geographical area, she just has to tell him "No, he doesn't know anyone, and he doesn't know any resources to direct you to, so maybe you should just Google it." I was shocked at how unconcerned and unhelpful she was being, so I tried to ask a few more questions to try to get some sort of recommendation for me and others who live in the San Diego area, but she just said "I know that Vince Vaughn flew out here from LA to see him. Even *he* had to make the trip. So I don't know what you want to do. I'm trying to tell you that there is no one else, but maybe you could just Google it." So, no thanks to the team at NYU. Anyone at tmswiki.org have any recommendations? - firstname.lastname@example.org
