Default New Information

When a mom or dad hears from a pediatrician or any other non treating physician that medical intervention is not warranted on vb's..especialy ulcerated or troublesome vb's..., and the parents feels and knows it should be...when the parent goes to another doctor w/o the referral for help and gets it...the new treating physician must be told this,,because the pro-active doctor will or should write a letter to the active doctor and explin the medical necessity for treatment...

This is what I was told today in clinic and it's very important to let all treating doctors know who isn't treating, because this way, educated ones can teach the importance to the non.

another great hurdle in the birthmarkfield...

I hope I explained myself correctly...
