Hi.. I'm seeing a 16 year boy who is a student pilot. He has experienced several fainting spells at school. He was given the tilt-table test and passed out immediately. Parents are trying to find a doctor that works with adolescents who are diagnosed with vaso-vagal syncope. I understand that there are treatment protocol available... but where??? They live in Atlanta, but will travel anywhere. Thanks for your help.
