Endometriosis Research Center and Women's Hospital, Inc.
July 2, 2013

Be careful. At first glance I noticed nothing wrong. As time has gone by I have noticed that they tell women scary things such as "there are no risks to excision surgery" This is simply not true. There are risks to any surgery. There are always risks to anesthesia. This seems to be part of some hidden agenda to get everyone to go have excision surgery with one of the doctors that they recommend. I found this reckless and irresponsible. Not every individual is a good candidate for surgery. There also appears to be many conflicts of interest between members of the ERC and the doctors they recommend. The ERC often makes negative and rude remarks about physicians that are not part of their associations. This does not see warranted or fair.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

They should present all the information out there to young women in an unbiased medium. Currently there is nothing set instone about endometriosis. I would also make programs for just support not just for education.
