Anyone know a great Lymphedema Therapist in San Diego Area????

Anyone know a great "Private Practice" Lymphedema Therapist in the San Diego Area????

My Surgeon suggested a Private Practice Therapist but unfortunately, this Therapist does not accept my Aetna Insurance. I called Aetna and they do not have a way to search for a "Lymphedema Specialists."

I tried the Lymphedema Network and found only the Private Practice Therapist (in San Diego) that my Surgeon suggested. Ugh!

By the way, my Surgeon's staff has not had good results with patients going to a hospital's Physical Therapy center (like Scripps).
