Hi my daughter has a large hemangioma on her face and have had a doctor locally look at her and want to get a second opinion and I was wondering who is the best in the nation to see.
Thanks
Stacey

Hi,

There are many but from my research it looks like Dr. Fay in Boston, Dr. Reinisch in LA, and Dr. Waner. There are many others to consider as well. Since we're in LA, we've having Dr. Reinisch remove my daugther's eyelid hemangioma. We also consulted with Dr. Fay. Both seem amazing.

Good luck - this site is a wonderful resource!

Stacey. You might want to try emailing Dr. Levitin from ask the expert. He is partners with Dr. Waner in NYC.

Dr. Waner and Dr. Levitan in NYC are the best. Dr. Waner is a miracle worker, and his right hand is Dr. Levitan.... Good Luck!

Dr. Reinisch removed my daughter's large forehead hemangioma. We sought opinions from all over the country and came down to choosing between Dr. Reinisch and Dr. Waner. When Dr. Reinisch called us at home at 8:30pm and talked to us about our daughter for 40 minutes on the phone we knew who we wanted to go with. We could not be happier with the results. Dr. Reinisch was wonderful and did an amazing job!!
Good luck!!
