Health Care Providers and Specialists

Parents tell us

doctor with child

"Finding the right doctor or specialist takes time, especially if you have a child with complex needs." "We tried to find someone who knew about my daughter's condition that she would be comfortable with. We finally found one my daughter liked who didn't know much about Nf1 but was willing to learn." "My son's dentist is so gentle and patient; I wish I could go to him. His office hygienist was the first to x-ray my child without a fight." "I went to the ASO (Autism Society of Oregon) referral page and got a referral to a wonderful Occupational Therapist. Now my daughter ties her own shoes."
