What can I expect at the first visit?
During your first visit, your child will be evaluated by a multi-disciplinary team of specialists. Your child’s diagnosis will be thoroughly reviewed by our team. A comprehensive medical and family history will be taken in order to create a care plan specific to the patient’s needs. Tests, including x-rays or blood work, may be required in some cases.
Will the Skeletal Dysplasia Services team communicate with my child's pediatrician?
The Skeletal Dysplasia Services team will work closely with your child’s primary care physician to ensure that any specialty care your child needs is properly integrated into their regular healthcare visits. We routinely send a summary of any visit to our clinic to the pediatrician to ensure close communication.
