Where to turn for more diagnosis/treatment when local referrals fail?

A friend of mine has had, since childhood, a set of medical symptoms that defy diagnosis. She recently finished another round of appointments with specialists in our area to no real effect and much frustration. She's asked me to help her figure out where she might turn for additional diagnosis and care (ie, ways to locate/contact best-in-class specialists/etc, not non-traditional medicine). I'm pretty healthy and have never had this kind of interaction with doctors, so I'm at a bit of a loss. [more inside]

No medicine for babies?

I'm expecting a baby in a few months and have questions about medicating infants and toddlers.

Where can I get more information about the U.S. health care reform bill?

I've been reading a lot of conflicting information about the U.S. health care reform bill (HR 3200) and its potential impact on different groups of Americans.
