We aren't just providers, we are parents too and we have been on both sides of care for complex kids. It is from our own frustration that we created a practice that parents can trust and progress can be made. All of our providers and staff are committed to providing the expertise you need and the compassion you deserve.
We specialize in helping families navigate the medical comorbidities of multiple complex disorders including autism spectrum disorder, connective tissue disorders, genetic issues, mitochondrial dysfunction, and more.
We begin by gathering and analyzing each patient's medical history. Additional comprehensive testing is done as needed to fill in the gaps. This gives us the information we need to systematically identify and treat complex constellations of symptoms. Our goal is improved health and quality of life for all our patients.
We believe that the best, most comprehensive care happens when multiple experts in multiple disciplines work together on each case. This collaborative, individualized care approach paired with our unique framework for systematic medical investigation is why doctors across the country send their toughest cases to our clinic.

RN, MSN, CPNP-PC
Netsanet Mulugeta is a Board Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner CPNP-PC. She has spent over a decade in the medical care of the pediatric population. Our patients and her friends affectionately call her Netsy.
Before she came to Lighthouse Complex Care, Netsy worked on a multidisciplinary team that evaluated, diagnosed, and coordinated care for Pediatric patients in Craniofacial and Plastic Surgery at Children's Hospital in Los Angeles, CA. Her patients were often very medically complex with multiple co-morbid conditions and unique challenges. This strengthened her clinical knowledge and expertise and she brings that forward into caring for the wide array of patients who come to Lighthouse. She believes a collaborative team approach is vital to caring for the pediatric patient with complex care needs and their families.
Netsy also brings the perspective as a mother of a medically complex child. She has spent thousands of hours researching both traditional and functional medicine approaches with access to resources not available to the public. Her own experiences have made her even more passionate about helping medically complex patients. She has centered her care for the pediatric patient to be holistic to help promote a healthier recovery.
Netsy is of Ethiopian decent, and speaks fluent Amharic.
