Ok, my first reaction was "who in their right mind would force their children to undergo that". However, I did a quick search, and was amazed at the results!

So, you may have to get a referral to a Children's Hospital facility in your area, because those were the only medical facilities that came up on my quest. Its quite likely that your new pediatrician will not feel comfortable continuing the regimen started by another physician, and will want to refer you anyway. If they don't even want to consider, just make sure that you have the full file on the child, indicating why the treatments are necessary. And, keep looking until you either find a doctor that will continue the treatments, or one that will refer you to a specialist.

Good luck! These were the closest Children's facilities in Kansas...I hope you find someone http://www.childrensmercy.org/Patients_a...

Also, take into serious consideration WHY some doctors will not do it.

Speak with your new pediatrician about this concern. See if he/she can refer you. You will be hard pressed to find someone exactly in your area with the same issue. This site is all over the world. Good luck.
