ICA Healthcare Provider Registry
For many people with interstitial cystitis (IC), an effective treatment plan requires a team approach, including urologists and other physicians, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, dietitians, and counselors. The ICA Healthcare Provider Registry includes clinicians who have agreed to be a referral source for IC patients. Any registered user of www.ichelp.org has access to this tool. Do you know of other healthcare providers who treat IC patients? Are you a healthcare provider who treats patients with IC and wants to be included in the ICA’s Healthcare Provider Registry? Email your name, suffix, specialty, practice name, address, phone number, and website URL to ICAmail@ichelp.org with your request to be included in the ICA Healthcare Provider Registry.

ICA is pleased to provide you with a list of IC, painful bladder syndrome (PBS), and chronic pelvic pain support groups in the United States. Go to www.ichelp.org/us-support-groups to log in and search for a support group in your area.
