Need F/U but Dr. refuse to make referral~!!
My daughter was diagnostic having birthmark inside her right upper eye lid, and we took her to see specialist for treatment using cash. She has been using propranolol, which going so far so good. Her hemangioma shrink a lot, even though we still can see a little bit on her eye lid. Now, she need to following with the specialist since it is already one month.
We r in california and using Medical insurance, we have tried two pediatricians but both of them refused to refer her to see the specialist for they both think she looks like nothing serious now!One doctor even said that u can stop taking medicine since it will fake away. We showed them how seriously she was like before taking medicine, and the pic showed that the growing hemangioma in her eyelid already block half of her eye sight, and she is only three months!
The specialist in the children's hospital told us that if we already got Medical, they cannot see my daughter if we want to use cash, or they will got into trouble.
But, what should we do now? we cannot using cash nor using insurance to see specialist, I am very nervous and helpless now~~~~
