I was told by DD's ENT that DD has nodules on her vocal chord. After sending us to 2 S/L pathologists who did nothing but just charged us for useless visits, he now is sending us to another ENT, however, the new ENT is not accepting any medical insurance, the consultation is $250 and depends on what needs to be done, the subsequent visit will likely be $750, even if it were considered as out-of-network, we have a base of $1000, hence the insurance is no help here. Before I start trying out ENT after ENT, I like to know whether anyone has experience with nodules on your kid's vocal chord and what did you or the doctor do? Talking to my pediatrician is no good, because she sent me to this ENT in the first place. The following is my previous thread on my experience with the S/L, what I did not finish was after I made the last post, I went to the 2nd S/L on the same day. Magically she told me that DD was cured and asked me to go back to the ENT. I told her I didn't see any improvement, but I ran anyway. There were other signs that she is not good. When I went back to the ENT who confirmed that nothing was changed, but admitted that he did not know any good S/L in the area, and sent me to a good S/L in New York. He told me that normally ENT does not operate on kids, hence he didn't really know what to do. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2240529 When I called the S/L, it turned out that he is an ENT, probably he is good as he can make a living without accepting insurance, but after spending nearly a thousand on those useless S/L pathologists. I am not sure whether I should take DD out of school, travel to NY just to see what the ENT says. I probably can try another ENT in our area, but I hope to hear other's experiences before restarting the cycle again.
