For consult visits, these visits are allotted more time than the Sick Visits and the Well Child Visits. This will assure that your physician has the appropriate amount of time to spend with you and your child.
When setting an appointment for a consult, it is advised that the appointment be made with your regular clinician as he/she is more familiar with the intricacies and history of your child.
Typically, consults are scheduled for issue(s) such as:
- School Readiness
- Academic Difficulties (LD, ADHD)
- Parental Separation/Divorce
- Age Specific Adjustment Issue(s)
- Emotional or Psychiatric Issue(s)
- Eating Disorders
- Foreign Travel
- Chronic Headaches
- Chronic Stomachaches
- Chronic Back or Joint Pain
- Allergies or Asthma
- School or Behavioral Problems
- Lactation Problems
- Other chronic or complicated conditions
Book a travel consult at least 6 weeks prior to departure; know which countries and regions within each country your child plans to visit. If traveling with a group that has specific recommendations or requirements, bring all necessary paperwork to your appointment. Recommended prescriptions and any necessary vaccinations will be given at the visit. If we do not have a required vaccine, we will refer you to a local travel clinic.
