I plan to take my daughter to Manila to see Dr Marcelo Hochman next month for surgery on her nose tip hemangiomas. He is a pediatric from US. Has anyone gone to see him yet? If so, how did it go?
Many parents here deal with Dr. Hochman. My personal opinion of him is very high and the parents that I know that go to him are very impressed. You will have a very talented and caring doctor on your side!!
Very good... Please update us and let us know how things go. I cannot stress enough that you are in MORE than capable hands.
Sure, will always let you know the progress.
Here is photo when she was days 7, month 4, 5,6.
Will attach photo in future, hope this will help mother who just know their kids having nose tip hemangioma.
