2nds please...

Stupid Doctors


When you're dealing with run-of-the-mill physician appointments it's irritating enough, what with long waits and grouchy staff. But when your child has a significant disorder such as Infantile Spasms, it can be seriously stressful. And then we're left dealing with the 2nd opinion phase of care, which comes with it's own set of stressors!

We're fortunate to have an amazing neurologist who has been alongside us since Trevor's diagnosis and continues to follow his case & fight for Trevor's best interest.

But I have heard horror stories from other parents. And have some of my own with other venues of medical care givers (ex. the pediatrician whose lack of knowledge landed us in the ER on Christmas Day during Trevor's ACTH course!).

So I was thrilled when I ran across Vitals.com! It lists the credentials of over 700,000 doctors! You can filter through specialty, zip code, city and more!

And the best news...it's FREE!

Plus, it allows us (the ordinaries) to rate the professionals! That totally tickles my *use your voice* bone!
