Does anyone have any recommendations for doctors treating PANS/PITANDS in the San Francisco Bay Area? I've looked through the archives already and found a bunch of doctors in the East Coast and midwest, South, and one doctor in So.Cal, but no one in the Bay Area.

 

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated, as we're just starting down this road and desperately need to get our son seen and treated!

 

Many thanks,

Vanessa

Here are some good Dr.'s. In Bay Area. We are dealing with Lyme and co-infections so we also see an LLMD in conjunction with our Pediatrician at Whole Child Wellness. If you are in the East Bay I would start with Dr. Mielke. If you are on the Peninsula I would start with Dr. Raj Patel.

 

All the Dr.'s below understand PANS, some work more with ASD community ( * ), some will provide IVIG if needed ( # )

 

Dr. Lynn Mielke in Pleasanton: http://www.developmentalspectrums.com * #

 

Dr. Julie Griffith in San Rafael: http://www.mybrainhealth.org * #

 

Dr. Raj Patel in Redwood City: http://www.drrajpatel.net/ *

 

Whole Child Wellness: Belmont: http://www.wholefamilywellness.org *

 

Dr. Sunjya Schweig: Petalume: http://hillparkmedicalcenter.com #

Thanks, this is awesone and ressuring to see this list! I have an appt. (and finished the gauntlet of paperwork) to see Dr. Chandra at Whole Family Wellness Dec 5 as my son has ASD and Lyme, and I think that his PITANDS is caused by gestationally acquired Lyme and coinfections. We also have our LLMD in the same office as Dr Patel, so perhaps I'll ask about a consult with him as well?

We see Dr. S at Whole Child Wellness and the same LLMD. Our twins are now 6 and would have fallen in the Lyme Induced ASD (diagnosed at 3) category. Older son PANS. I have heard good things about Dr. Chandra. You are in good hands. If Dr. H feels your child needs IVIG he will definitely refer you to the right individual for help.
