Default Dr. Rabinowitz in Wisconsin

Hello. I am in the process of having our 8 mo. old son looked at for what seems to be a vascular birthmark of some kind, most likely a venous malformation. I saw Dr. Rabinowitz listed in the directory, but I wanted to see if anyone had any experience with her or has heard anything about her. Also, if anyone has any idea what the likelihood of a doctor recommending treatment for what our pediatrician believes (and I do too, based on what I've read) to be a not very large, not noticeable (because it's under his hair) venous malformation. Do Drs. usually automatically recommend laser or surgical treatment? it seems to be asymptomatic, and of course, i don't want my baby to have to go through anything unnecessary. Thanks for any advice!

Serena
