Find a Doctor

*Note: The list of doctors in "Find a Doctor" are possibilities for you to further investigate, contact and discuss with them their willingness to review your films and determine possible treatment options. The decision of choice is always yours, and you must be comfortable with your physician; the Foundation cannot recommend whom you should see, but we have provided a list with contact information, so that you might more easily determine possibilities to provide treatment options.
