Default Hemangioma under left eye

My 6 week old son has a rapidly growing Hemangioma under his left eye which is currently the size of a dime. It wasn't there at birth and started to develop a week after. I went to my family doctor and a pediatrician and both have told me to just wait it out as it isn't affecting him. Although I can appreciate this method I would like other options available .

I have an appt with a ped/derm who specializes in Hemangioma in a few weeks and don't want to be turned away again. Is there any way I can ask for treatment and not be turned down?
