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?

Hi Hana1st - We have a son with a large hemangioma under his eye. See some pictures here
We started propranolol about a month ago, and we have already seen considerable difference. We had 3 opinions and they all suggested the same treatment plan. Not to scare you, but the sooner the better to get him into see a specialist. This is my facebook profile
. Please send me a message if you want to chat more and see more pictures of his hemangioma after propranolol. He has had no side treatments and the progress has been amazing!
