Finding the right doctor is important. It can often be a challenging process because there are few doctors in the US that are trained in mold toxicity, but it is worth it.
Working with a doctor that has experience with mold toxicity might be more expensive than most, or you may have to travel to get to him/her, but in the long run you are likely to save because you won’t waste money going to the wrong doctors and your recovery won’t be further delayed.
