Hi everyone,
Looks like our happy family is moving to South Dakota. I went to the site to see all the Dr.'s that are available, and oh what did my eye's see? NONE! None in any of the states surrounding......we are FREAKING OUT!!!!

Help....

Anyone?


South Dakota folks? ANYONE?

Hugs,
Rejena and Tim....

Hi and welcome!

We do have a very active member who lives in SD, but her child has multiple things going on, so I believe they go to the Mayo Clinic.

Just because there's no one on our list doesn't mean that there's no one there that can treat a PWS. Have a look:

You'll just have to call around and get references when you get there. If you are moving with a corporation, this might even be easier. Get in touch with the insurance company.

When are you moving?

Missy

Also, keep in mind that even if they aren't listed and maybe do not have a lot of experience, we have wonderful experts that are willing to give their opinions, and some will even talk with your local docs on recommended options/plans.
