  1. Moderately autistic 13 year old has been battling PANS/PANDAS for 2 years (if not earlier now that i look back at his behaviors). working with an integrative/functional PA in FL but thinking we need someone who is an immunologist/MD but not someone who will just prescribe Antibiotics, IVIG and not consider alternative medicines.

The initial consult can also cost $1,000 to $1,500. I've read in a Dec2014 thread on this forum about Dr. Murphy not treating PANDAS patients directly much and concentrating on research instead.
