Default Can anyone recommend a specialist in UCLA?

I heard that UCLA has a great childrens facility, but not sure if they have any one who is familiar with Lymphagioma?

We live in Las Vegas and willing to drive to Los Angeles. I understand Dr. Levintin is in Beverly Hills and I would LOVE to have him see my 9month old daughter. But thought of asking if 1) anyone had any experience with Dr. Levintin 2) anyone had any experience getting treatment at UCLA medical center?

Thank you for your time.
God Bless

Default UCLA recommendation pleeeeeeese

Hi Corrine,

We live in Las Vegas and plan to seek California for medical treatment for my 9month old baby girl who has lymphagioma. We finally got word that our HMO/HPN insurance approved for UCLA but donít know WHO to seek out for?? Do you know a specialist? What is your experience? I heard UCLA has outstanding services for children.

I got in touch with Dr. Levintin in Beverly Hills and ideally wanted HIM to see my daughter but the insurance denied my request.
Any advice? I really want the best doctor for my daughter.

Please email arisa_hayama@yahoo.com

Childrens Hospital of LA and Childrens Hospital of Orange County have some good specialists. Dr Reinisch, in LA/Beverly Hills, is also great. If the insurance denies, you can always appeal the decision. good luck.
