Talking Trying to locate Dr. Morelli, help!!

Hello everyone! I am new to these boards, but definitely not new to birthmarks. My name is Jessica and I'm 25 years old... I was born with a large port wine stain on my right cheek. I have had 25 laser treatments on it since I was 8 years old, but haven't had any treatments for almost seven years. My doctor was Dr. Joseph Morelli, who I loved dearly. He truly changed my life.... I still look at pictures of my birthmark before I had any treatments, and look at it today... it's night and day!

But anyways, the real reason why I'm posting is I have decided to have more treatments. I live in Washington state (always have) but always either flew or drove to Colorado for my treatments. At the time I started, Dr. Morelli was one of the only doctors on the west coast that did these treatments. Since then, I have had a few done here in Washington, and it was fine... but I'd really like to have another session with Dr. Morelli. I am married and have a one year old son now, and I desperately want my husband to meet him... he's seen many pictures and heard of what an amazing doctor he is. I also want him to meet my little boy!

I don't know why, but I am having the hardest time locating him! When I saw him, he was at the Children's Hospital in Denver, located on 9th Ave. I tried calling the number for it, and it's saying it has been disconnected. I can't seem to locate him anywhere!! Could someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks everyone, and I'm so glad this place exists.... how I wish it was here when I was growing up!!

~Jessica~

Is this the number you've been calling? I know one other person on the boards here that has been going to him, so if this contact information is not right, I can find out.

Maybe try getting a directory assistance 'on campus" and see they have updated number for his department.

GOOD LUCK! (also if you decide you would like to continue laser and can't find dr. M.... let me know, I might be able to give you a referral on the "west coast".

Hi Jessica,

Frist of all welcome to the group. I am a 24 years old with facial PWS/SWS.

Dr. Moreli was my first Derm also. I started seeing him when I was five. I saw him for about 7/8 years before there was a machine in Nebraska where I live.
I do not know if I remember seeing you at his office your name does not ring a bell. If you want you can check out my website to see if I look formilar. hankspws.com

Anyways, I called up one of my friends that sees one of Dr. Morelli's coleges (since Dr. Morelli is only treats children). The number she had was 720-848-0500. That is the main Dermatologies office number according to my friend.


Also, just wanted to let you know there are a couple good doctors in CA if you are interested. The are in the resource section.

Also, have you ever heard of the name Geoff Ritchie? If not, he is a guy that lives on the Washington Oragan boarder. He has a PWS like us. If you ever wanted to get a hold of him you can get is email off his website at geoffspws.com

Well I hope this helps, and if you ever want to talk, just post or email me.

Hank
