Yes, I do believe having a specialist evaluate her is important. If you email me I can send you a letter explaining why this is important and in the long run can save money.

One thing to consider when trying to convince them to start intervention: Nasal tip hemangiomas can be very stubborn and most do not go away without leaving some mild to significant destruction. Some concerns to go over with you doctors: Hemangiomas in this location often cause mis-shape, distruction to the cartilage, atrophied skin, breathing issues, etc. Your daughter's might not be that significant now, but early intervention in my opinion can eliminate or improve the final outcome.
