There are several “mitochondrial” specialists in the United States. However, in addition to the places listed below where there are doctors who have specialization in or significant experience with mitochondrial disorders, many other practitioners have started to gain knowledge in the mito arena due to both having more patients with mitochondrial dysfunction as well as the increased awareness of mitochondrial disorders in the general medical community.
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a mitochondrial disorder, or are suspected of having one, you can contact the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation for a doctor in your area who specializes in mitochondrial disorders.
