A good medical home: I feel your frustration. Answers are complicated, requiring lots of different doctors/specialists to communicate well with each other&with you. Get a good medical home for him, a pediatrician comfortable with complex kids.Ask his specialists who they think is good. Doctors with combined training in internal medicine & pediatrics(med/peds) are often more comfortable w/ very complex patients.
