In 2011 our son was referred to Dr. Lamkin because he had chronic bone pain, abnormal x-rays, stomach pain and an enlarged spleen, thrombocytopenia and chronic fatigue. He had a battery of blood tests which ruled out certain cancers. Everything stopped there and Dr. Lamkin decided not to do a bone marrow aspiration because our son just didn't seem sick enough. Had he taken that crucial step the lipids storing in his bones would have been discovered and our son would not have spent the next few years in pain and depressed because he was told he was fine when he knew he was not. Upon finding a new doctor, his spleen had to be removed because it was the size of a football due to the lipid storage and the aspiration was done immediately. He has Gaucher's Disease and if that had been discovered in 2011 and treated with the enzyme replacement therapy he would not have lost his spleen. The damage caused by this disease would have been slowed helping his bones and other organs. We are still learning about this disease and decided to write this review at this time in hopes that it may help someone else. If the decision to skip that vital step had not been made, this review would have been very different and that cost our son quite a bit.
