A Consult with your regular doctor may be more appropriate if your child has special health considerations like:
- Chronic headaches
- Chronic stomachaches
- Chronic back or joint pain
- Allergies or asthma
- School or behavioral problems
- Lactation problems
- Nutritional consults (e.g., overweight, picky eater, eating disorders)
- Any other chronic or complicated conditions
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.
To make an appointment for a consult, your child should be current with our recommendations for scheduled Well Child Visits.
