The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation Dr. Linda Rozell-Shannon, PhD President and Founder

The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation has collected a list of medical providers ​worldwide who treat all types of vascular birthmarks​​. The VBF Find a Doctor Directory​ continues to grow daily as more doctors register on our website. You may also wish to check out our List of Treatment Centers specializing in vascular birthmarks. For non-medical networking opportunities and support, you may reach out to a VBF Global Ambassador in your area, who can also refer you to one of our VBF Parent Representatives.

Search our Doctor Database

We invite you to search the list of doctors we have collected, and check back often as more doctors are registering with us all the time as we extend our outreach. VBF Experts are doctors that have worked closely with the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation to provide significant information and support, and are available to answer your questions directly through our VBF Ask the Expert contact form.

HINT: Some of our doctors did not designate a speciality. Try searching by location only to yield the greatest results.
