What Your Patients Can Expect

  • There is usually little to no wait for an appointment but during the spread of COVID-19 waits may be longer. Telehealth appointments are being offered to patients when appropriate.
  • A family’s first appointment will include meetings with more than one provider and a social worker when appropriate.
  • First appointments typically last at least 2 hours.
  • At the first appointment, we meet with the caregiver and patient together and also meet separately with the patient alone if they are over the age of 12.
  • Depending on the concern, a physical exam, including a pelvic exam, may be indicated. 
  • At times we have trainees in the clinic, including students, residents and fellows.
