What to expect at your appointment
How long will my appointment be?
Expect to spend approximately 2-3 hours at the clinic. It varies from person to person.
Why will we be seeing many doctors in one day?
Because of the complex nature of DSDs, your child will benefit most from a team approach to care. Rather than multiple appointments in different locations, at the GUIDE clinic, you can see all the specialists you need in one place.
It takes many disciplines to come up with a plan of care specific to your child. On a day to day basis, these doctors do not work in the same department. In order to get them all together on the same day, we have one GUIDE clinic appointment for your family.
Will labs need to be done on the day of my appointment?
Yes, lab work may need to be done. This is also on an individual basis and dependent on the plan of care.
