If you find that you don't want to have treatment during the first appt. that is up to you when you arrive. I would see what Dr. Goldberg has to say and why. There are reasons for treating right away... if rapid growth is occuring a doctor might feel it is best not to waste anymore time. Arm yourself with questions.... and keep in mind...this is your baby and you are the "customer" is your choice and your right to know everything, to have the options and opinions available.

I would also like to invite you to join the MSN-VB group we are in the process of building a new site, but for the rest of the month we'll still be here: We have other families with similar h. and experiences.

Let me know if I can help you with anything. I do have a list of questions that might help you get started. Feel free to email me.
