Report New to this, how to get doctors to provide treatment? in PANS / PANDAS (Lyme included) Posted August 12, 2012 Let me guess..CHOP. Yes, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. I was referred to their PANDAS "specialist" Dr. Judith Martin, who might just be the single worst doctor I have ever encountered in my life. She basically sat there and interviewed us on our first visit, with her back turned to my son typing into her computer. When she got enough info for her researched she told us thanks and to schedule a follow up in 6 months. Not once single piece of advice or treatment option other than take antibiotics when there is an infection. So we waited the 6 months for her next "PANDAS clinic" day where she again interviewed us, this time in the presence of a psychiatrist. They left the room, huddled in the hallway, and wouldn't you know it, the psychiatrist recommended that if there were still symptoms to set an appointment a psychiatrist. When I pressed her to offer another treatment, she reluctantly tried to test my son for strep. When he wouldn't open his mouth wide enough, she urged we 'go home and practice.' I went to my pediatrician the next day, had him tested, and they found a nasty double ear infection. After 2 days of augmentin he was back to normal. Thanks for the advice everyone. I am still processing it all to try and figure what to do next.
