* RevolutionHealth This group is offering a doctor who will comment about West Nile.  Dr. Val Jones, senior medical director at this site, is a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialist.  The site gives this phone number: 1 800-990-2892 and the email address for media information is media@revolutionhealth.com.  Use this site with caution as it has a .com extension, and also, they contacted us with this available source, which always raises my suspicions.  Nevertheless, here it is for your use.
