Thank you for your interest in the PANS/PANDAS Consultation Program.

It is with a heavy heart that we are writing to inform you that Dr. Swedo, our program director, has decided to retire. With her departure we have made the difficult decision to close the program.

For our clients who have already submitted their paperwork, Dr. Swedo remains committed to see you through both the consultation and follow-up session.

For clients who are interested in our program, and who have been unable to submit their paperwork, we are very sorry that we are unable to schedule a consult.

Below is a list of resources that we hope you will find helpful.



      1. ASPIRE
      2. PANDAS Physicians Network 
      3. IOCDF 
      5. Rogers Memorial Health


It has been a pleasure serving the PANS/PANDAS community and we hope that the growth in resources that we’ve seen over the past several years continues and one day gets to the point where quality care is no longer difficult to obtain.
