Default Please HELP with finding a doctor

Hi everyone,

I have a PWS covering most of the left side of my face. I had probably 15-20 laser treatments when I was younger, the last one being about 5 years ago. I am looking to start having treatments again and want to go to a doctor that knows what he's doing. I live in Southern CA and saw the list of the doctors on this website and birthmarks.com, but I just wanted to see if anyone has had a good experience with a doctor in So Cal. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you...

You are in a great location!! Contact Dr. Stuart Nelson at Beckman Laser Institute in Irivine California.* YOu can read more about him on the ask the expert area on the home page of this site (and contact him).* Also, if you skroll down the front page you can read about him being physician of the year.* Under find a physician you can get all of his contact information.

Dr. Nelson has so much experience with lasers and works with Candella to develop laser devices.* He has many lasers in the institute and is able to customize the tx. for the patients' needs.

GOOD LUCK

Corinne

Hi,

First of all welcome to the group.
I am a 23 year old with facial PWS.

I agree with Corinne about seeing Dr. Nelson. I met him during a conference last summer and he is a very nice guy.

Also, if you are interested, I do know a couple adults in the southern CA area if you are interested email me and I will give you their contact info.

Talk to you soon.

Hank
