We live in Oregon (West Linn - just outside of Portland). Our daughter has a nose tip hemangioma and another one on her neck. We just found this information out last week. We are looking for a support group. We are also wondering if there are any specialists in Oregon or Washington. If not, we are willing to travel anywhere needed to get our baby properly treated.

Hello!!! We live in Vancouver. We go to OHSU/Doernbecher in Portland. We see Dr. Krol...he has a special interest in Hemangiomas and has been very wonderful! He spends a lot of time with each child and listens to the parents. Also, Dr. Lee has done two laser treatments on our son. He is also a wonderful dr. (he was recently interviewed by KGW NEWS).

Dr. Krol's clinic # is 503-418-5238

Our son is 6 months old now and we have been in treatment for 5 months. If you have any q's or want to "talk" go ahead and contact me.

Hi Corinne,
Thanks for the contact info. for OHSU. We took Kelly to Dr. Macarther at Doernbechers. There was another doctor seeing her at the same appointment, but I don't know what his name was. I wasn't sure what kind of experience OHSU had with hemangiomas so I was a little nervous about having her seen there. Now that I know that they deal with this condition, I feel a lot more comfortable. We go back to OHSU/Doernbechers on the 11th of November. We will take those names with me and ask if they agree with Kelly's treatment plan.

Have any of you ever seen the specialist that this site lists for the Seattle area - Dr. Jonathon Perkins? I am going to be in Seattle next week showing Kelly off to my relatives (she is only nine weeks old) and I was thinking of contacting him for a possible second opinion.

Dr. Macarther saw my son too. She is an ENT specialist correct?

She just took a quick look at my son during an anomilies clinic. Have you asked to be scheduled for one of those...it like the first tuesday of each month. All the derm. specialists are there at the same time.

Dr. Waner is going to be in Portland this weekend. I've been trying to find out if he is seeing any kids.

Hi Corinne,

Dr. MacArther is an MD: Assistant Professor, Pediatric Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery. We are suppossed to see her again on Tuesday.

Kelly is scheduled to see Dr. Knol on Monday. They want us to go to both appointments. I'll ask about the anomilities clinic.

Let me know if you find anything about Dr. Waners visit. I'll search around for info. of his visit too. I'll let you know if I get anywhere with that search.

CA,

DR. Macarthur seems great too. I wish I would have spent more time with her...but at the time it did not seem necessary. My insurance co. classified her as ENT Doctor... I wasn't sure her official title and department.

Thank you. I will keep that info handy if we need to see her in the future.
