Ilsley, you might want to read the IRS publication on Medical Deductions, Publication 502. It's fairly thorough.

Thanks, Do you know if it is all deducted or just a portion?

Yes this is deductible as long as you have a letter from the MD certifying the need for care, and you keep a proper payroll record.
