Default Doctors near LA

Recently I started contact with a mother from the United Arab Emerates that has a child with CMTC. She will be coming to the US for 9 months in January and needs to find a doctor/doctors for her daughter in the LA area. Does someone have suggestions of names that I could pass along to her?
Thanks,
Alison

I would start by getting her to contact Dr. Nelson or Dr. Levitin. She can do so through http://birthmark.org/experts.php

While they may not exactly specialize in CMTC, they are both knowledgeable about vascular birthmarks, AND familiar with docs in the area that they might consult with.

You did mean Los Angeles and not Louisiana, right?

Yes I meant Los Angeles! I posted this same thing on one of my other groups and then another mom pointed it out. I didn't even think about it. I will send the information on to the mother.
Thanks,
Alison

Dr. Kelly works with Dr. Nelson, she would likely be a good option as well.
