Description of services:

The Diagnostic and Consultation Clinic is an outpatient clinic that targets patients whose initial diagnosis and symptoms requires further evaluation, who do not meet the criteria for a subspecialty clinic and for whom a second opinion is desired.  The Diagnostic and Consultation Clinic aims to support and resolve diagnostic dilemmas by addressing a child's specialized medical needs through treatment, management and coordination with the patient's primary care provider.

Information for referral sources:

Patients can only be referred by their physician to the clinic and will require the following:

  • A physician to physician referral.
  • Pre-authorization is required by some insurance plans.
  • To avoid unnecessary testing, the medical records, test results and X-rays will be requested prior to appointment.
  • Services are provided in close cooperation with the patient's referring physician.
  • Consultation with other specialty services will be consulted, if necessary.
  • Diagnosis, evaluation and recommended treatment information is provided promptly to the referring physician and family for ongoing care.

Clinic evaluations include a thorough review of the patient's medical history along with a complete physical examination.  Please provide the following when calling to schedule a patient for a diagnostic examination:

  • Patient name, date of birth and parent's/guardian's phone number
  • Probable diagnosis or symptoms
  • Insurance/referral information
  • Clinical findings or symptoms which cause the patient to visit the physician

Clinic consultations will be held weekly on Wednesday mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Coordination for treatment with the referring physician will take place within a week following the initial consult.
