I think a good DAN is just as critical as a Good PANDAS doctor, if your child doesn't just get better quickly on antibiotics, so how about if those of us who have found good ones, share that info here? Also a short bit about their strengths, but very brief. Sound good?

Dr. Keelyn Wu Falmouth Maine http://osteopathiche...s/keelyn-wu-do/
What I like about Dr. Wu, is when I bring him my fist full of other ideas and print outs, he actually thinks about them and will try new things. He is pretty cutting edge in the Autism field and is constantly attending seminars and trying the latest things. Nice guy. If he doesn't take your insurance (but he probably does) $115 for a half hour. Prescribes B12 injections and Respen-A. About 3 1/2 week wait for an appointment.

Can anyone recommend others

would also be good to note if your child also has an autism diagnosis.

I have a great one that is functional medicine/DAN doc, has daughter with autism so she also has that momma bear spirit, in North Florida, also serves North Georgia a few days a month. Does not take insurance but gives you the forms to file. Around $600 for first visit - ours was 4.5 hours fro first child, 2.5 for second child. We are PANDAS and LYME and other CO-INFECTIONS. She has added a new dimension to our treatment and has been key in turning my DS around. HIGHLY recommend some sort of functional medicine doc, even if not DAN. No Autism. PM me if you want her name.

functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease rather than thinking in terms of " specialists" who only look at a certain area of the body.

I think functional medicine is " good medicine" the way it's meant to be practiced. Your mind and body are one, not separate, and should be treated as such. (just my 2cents)
