Hi Laurie,

What area of California do you live in?

If you're close to LA, I would recommend UCLA. Dr. Bartdorff is supposed retired but there are doctors who mentored under him and there can provide adequate treatment.

If you're close to San Diego, I would recommend UCSD. I'm not aware of any doctors there but the most well known doctors work there. If they accepted my insurance, and at least 2 of my doctors were affiliated, I would go there regardless of the distance. I would have to travel a bit and I don't do well with even an hour car ride.

I'm not familiar with any other ares of California, as far as doctors are concerned. I hope either one listed above is helpful to you.

Take care and I wish your friend and her/his daughter the best.
GOD Bless!
