Default Best Doc in NYC?

My 9 week old son has an H on his inner left eyelid.

Who is the best of the best? We are located in NYC but can travel anywhere.

thank you.

NY and NYC have great options for you. Check out the list VBF has published on find a physician list. Many people travel from around the U.S. and beyond to see Dr. Waner and team. Dr. Waner can consult with Dr. Fay (pediatric ophthalmologist) from Boston if needed on eyelid hemangiomas. Dr. Fay travels to NYC once per month to work on complex eye related cases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

My 4 year old has had six surgeries on her scalp hemangioma. We live in the NYC area as well, and saw many doctors in other cities, before being blessed with Dr. Waner. Dr. Waner and his team are the best of the best. WHen he walked into the exam room the first time, I had that overwhelming feeling of relief - that this was the man who would help us, and he has. Good Luck.

I went to NYC all the way from Guam to have my daughter treated by Dr's Waner and Levitin. They did a wonderful job (we are now 10 days post op).

Best of luck!
