Special Kids, Special Care

Shared care for kids and teens with special needs

As with medical consultation, our Special Kids, Special Care services for children with special needs are by hospital or physician referral only. Some of the conditions for which shared care would be an option include: cerebral palsy, congenital heart diseases, Down Syndrome and other genetic disorders, epilepsy and other problems.

In Special Kids, Special Care situations, patients continue ongoing primary care with their family doctor, while we assume responsibility for monitoring and coordinating care of medical issues which require specialized training, or additional time not available to most family physicians. Ultimately each diagnosis has a different list of needs and as such the treatment options we handle vary on a case by case basis.
