Any doctor prescribe gnrh in ny? Can someone help me to locate a obgyn in ny who prescribe gnrh in ny?

See the right kind: Any doctor can prescribe gnrh but you need to see the right type of doctor to be sure you are being treated appropriately.

Smoked marijuana in jun2013 for 5 days and twice in Oct2013. I have to take a drug test in a week.. Can it be detected in urine or hair follicle test?

Doubtful, but: If the amounts were huge in Oct, the hair test at a very fine cut-off might nab you. Not likely.

Need recommendation for a doctor in waco tx skilled at myomectomy for mulitple fibroids (i/s, o/s & in the wall).  Successful ufe in 2005. Bulk symptoms persist @ age 48; no hysterectomy wanted.?

Can a doctor order a urine tox screen while in the hospital without informing the patient?? In NY?
