Default Just Diagnosed- lots of questions

My 2 month old was just diagnosed today with CMTC with my prodding. I was told originally that he had "hemangiomas." This diagnosis comes from his regular pediatrician. He has recommended a renal ultrasound and also a visit to the opthamologist to check for glaucoma. My question is, is this enough or should I ask for him to be seen by a specialist? His CMTC is located on the outside of his L leg from thigh to tiny toes.
