Try Dr Elena Pope at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto - she is a pediatric dermatologist.

Hi there,
we're seen at Sick Kids in Toronto by Dr. Ho who is in the dermatology clinic. They have basically just looked at us and said "why are you here?!" my son ended up with 9 hemangioma's shortly after birth. He's 2 this coming week and at this point one very small H has completely involuted (yet it has left a "dimple" mark where it was) and we're still waiting on the other 8 - all in various stages of involution.

I haven't been overly impressed with the treatment we've gotten in Toronto.

Pookey28: I am so glad to see your post! I am also in BC Canada. My 11 weeks daughter has a hemangioma on her forehead and both our family dr and a pediatrician said we should wait and see. But daughter's H grows very fast so I had to do my own research. I knew propranolol was very effective but wasn't sure which doctors, if any, in BC Canada would use it. On this website I found the Dr. Prendiville was on the list, and so I asked my family doctor to refer my daughter to her. Now I feel much more hopeful knowing Dr. Prendiville is supportive on propranolol! Hope I get an appointment soon...

I had the 1st doseage administered at the hospital...and each week they are raising it by 1/4 ml...each time we go back to our local Hospital.

I SWEAR this is hands down the sweetest most knowledgeable dr when it comes to H's. She came HIGHLY HIGHLY recommeded and now I know why!
