Pediatric uveitis specialist

Postby danjacob » Wed Apr 25, 2018 2:07 pm

My 3 YO daughter was recently diagnosed with uveitis. Can anyone recommend the top pediatric uveitis specialist in the US? More specifically, is anyone familiar with a pediatric uveitis specialist in the Cleveland, OH area?

Thanks!

I'm not sure if any are pediatric specialists but they would be a great starting point. All of them are Uveitis specialist and members of the American Uveitis Society.

Thanks - I reached out to them and they do not see children. Are you familiar with this place near Boston: http://www.mersi.com/ ?

Yes, if you can make the trip to see Dr. Foster he is the leading specialist. I don't know how far of a drive that is, but even calling his office to get advice for other doctors that treat children would be a great idea.
