Pediatrician experienced with Special Needs in Geneva

Hi,
We love our pediatrician and she's always been great with our kids, but has really been lacking since our son was diagnosed with autism. From the minute I noticed something was wrong I was on my own with battling to see the right people whereas other parents I've spoken to had their pediatricians take care of the whole process. Actually even though he wasn't speaking at 2 she said it cant be autism as he just looked at me. I just think theres a lack of training thats all. He's in the right programme now but I would love to change pediatrician to one that is interested in reading his reports and evaluations and understands and suggest services and therapies. Can anybody recommend one in Geneva please? Pref Rive Gauche?
Thanks.

Thanks, I know they do great and invaluable work but I've tried for the last 6 months to organize to meet with them with no success! And they don't answer questions by email until you've paid for the consultation. I kind of gave up on them! Any other ideas?
