      When I was diagnosed there wasn't a specialist in Iowa City.  Their website says there currently is one – a Dr. Milhem – but I have a vague memory that he also left.  My questions: Does u of i have a specialist?  Is he/she ok?  Is there a place in Chicago that would be good and relatively convenient?  We are about 2-3 hours south west of Chicago.   Thanks.

      btw- this info is for a newcomer to the area and to melanoma.  It is so great to be able to direct her to this site with so many knowlegeable, helpful people.
