Exclamation Port Wine Stain + Glaucoma specialists needed

Looking for Specialists to treat Port Wine Stain + Glaucoma associated with PWS around Plantation, Florida or Madison, Huntsville.

I need to know the availability of specialists in either of the cities to decide where to relocate.

It is kind of urgent, so any quick responses are highly appreciated

Thanks

Hi and welcome!

I can't think of specialists in either of those areas. Of course, Dr. Comi works so closely with us that she clouds out other SWS specialists. If I had to pick one of those, I'd go to whichever is closer to Birmingham.

When are you moving?

Birmingham, AL... any doc in particular or just a hunch ?

I am still investigating the docs around these places
There seem to be few docs around Miami and Lauderdale in FL and of course Birmingham in AL

Looking for first hand info / experience from members around these areas

My relocation is blocked till I finalize a good doc with Candela VBEAM pulse dye laser

check this:

But of course, others will be here soon with their experiences. You might call the doctors' office and ask for current references. That would probably be faster.

It is always a good idea to contact one of our specialists (ask the expert) as they might have a recommendation for you in your area.
