To: Scott D 92% success

You intimated in a reply to Dr Z that your 'clinic' is having a 92% success rate. I'm sure we would all love to see the back up data showing that rate of success.

Mark:
It is likely that Dr. Z is performing ESWT in conjunction with whatever other modalities are needed for PF and the 92% rate may reflect that. This is a very different scenario than an experimental scenario in which one group gets nothing done and a second group has ESWT performed in isolation. My numbers, in my experience would corroborate that of Dr. Z, but, again, my patients are usually getting 'the works' as opposed to ESWT in isolation. This is where it is tricky comparing our experience to double blinded studies...
