In addition to individual appointments, we are also able to see sibling groups in foster care at the same appointment.
What to expect
The initial appointment typically takes about one hour. It includes a head-to-toe medical exam, hearing and vision screening, immunizations if needed, and blood work. We also screen for depression and developmental health and will refer to any specialty care that we determine is necessary. If the child needs any prescriptions, we can assist with that as well. Our team works to organize your child's medical history so you have a comprehensive record of health available.
We will also see children for a follow-up exam at a later date. That visit lasts 30 minutes and include a medical exam, developmental and mental-health screening, and a referral to a primary-care provider, if needed. After two visits, we refer your child to a primary care provider so they can begin establishing a relationship with a long-term medical home.
