This is not a complete list of doctors who specialize in hemangiomas but nevertheless, these are the doctors that are part of the list of resources for VBF. It seems like a great place to start! Maybe you have already seen this list, but I thought I'd point it out just in case. It can be hard trying to find out information at the beginning but going to see a specialist is usually a great idea and often helps you to have some more peace of mind. I know that it helped me! Good luck and let us know if you have any questions.
Thank you! I did look at the link, but I'm not quite sure if either of the two local doctors listed might be what I'm looking for. One, while it does say management of pediatric patients, looks like they mostly do cosmetic type stuff, or laser treatments. The other looks to be a plastic surgeon. I do think I might just suck it up and take the trip to Gainesville, since we have family there. I will keep you all posted!
