The Jack McGovern Coats’ Disease Foundation provides this directory of doctors who are familiar with Coats’ Disease as a service to individuals who have Coats’ Disease, and family and friends of those individuals. The directory also has been created to provide resources and information for doctors and medical personnel who need to confer with other doctors, or want to refer their patient to another doctor for treatment of Coats’ Disease or any other medical condition. The information provided in this directory does not include any guarantee or certification that any listed doctor is appropriate for the care required by any particular patient. We are not a service that reviews and certifies the competency, expertise, or special training of any doctor. That type of certification can only come from medical organizations, such as the Medical Board of California (http://www.mbc.ca.gov/lookup.html), and other organizations devoted to determining the competency and specialization of doctors. The Jack McGovern Coats’ Disease Foundation expressly disclaims all liability for damages of any kind arising out of the use of this directory to select a doctor, or as a result of reliance on diagnoses provided by any doctor listed here.
No other use of the material found in this directory is permitted without the express written consent of the Board of Directors, together with the written consent of the individuals who provided the material.
