Okay, so if anyone knows anyone with kids on the Spectrum in the SF Bay Area who needs an ophthalmologist I highly recommend Dr. Gordon Smith in San Ramon! This guy and his staff are awesome!!

Sounds like the only thing wrong with him is that he's only an opthamologist and not a neurologist, psychiatrist and developmental pediatrician too! What a find...enjoy!

Does he have a brother practicing in NY?

Seriously though, I am very happy for you. Now you don't have to stress for several days pre- opth. visit. One less thing to worry about.

Yes, I did. :)


He was very happy to hear about what we were doing. He said with all the great orgs, sites, and groups out there all he could think was needed now was something to link them all together. He had thought about how one would go about doing something like that in the past, but everything he came up with was just too complicated. Incorporating a 'gossip chain' had never occurred to him, lol.

Brother, no, he has no brothers. But he might know someone who knows someone in your area. Long Island, right? I'll ask if you want me too. :)

Thanks,

If I really need it, I'll give you a shout. Our OT is recommending we see a particular optometrist first, (I guess he specialises in 'OT for eyes' -if that makes any sense). If it we need to take it to the next step, I'll definitely ask you to ask him.

That is one fantastic Dr. It boggles my mind that an opthalmologist would specialise and I couldn't be happier for all the families who are in his care. What a thrill for Jade.
