Major fight with doc.....grrrrrrrrrrr
My grandson was born in april with a birthmark on his face.. At first the pediatrician said it was a mongolian spot then he said a few weeks later its a hair nevus. Well anyway when we took the baby for his shots we asked the pediatrician if we could get a referal to a specialist to get more facts of what type of birthmark and treatment options etc . He promptly asked WHY.. We told him that we didnt feel well informed on what it was, why is it scaley and if we try to wash it it bleeds and if any health risks were associated with it and let me tell you he went OFF... he acted like he HAD informed us and basically said there is NO reason to see any other Doc.. it was plain and simple that his parents just had not dealt with the fact that its there and nothing was going to change that! Yes his parents have dealt with it and they are only looking out for their sons best interest! Well we left without our referral but I have a friend in medical field in another city about 3 hours away that got us into a dermatologist June 9th.. Has anyone else out there butted heads with your pediatrician like this over a birthmark? would you take your child to see a specialist regardless what your ped said?
