PARENTS AND DOCTORS REACT
As a pediatrician and a mom, I just want to thank Neil Swidey for his article on PANS/PANDAS (“The Children Who Change Overnight,” October 28). Too often medical professionals are unwilling to acknowledge what we do not know or what does not easily fit into a diagnosis that we have been taught. I have many PANDAS patients in my practice in the Philadelphia suburbs, and I admit to each one of them that I am learning right along with them, being open-minded, as pediatricians need to be. Thank you to Swidey for continuing to spread the word.
