An initial evaluation at the Cincinnati Center for Eosinophilic Disorders (CCED) takes about four days, depending on the needs and medical history of the patient. Your journey to us may have been long and full of medical evaluations and expenses. Our team gastroenterologist will review you or your child’s medical history and tailor your visit to you or your child's specific needs.
Our team will balance you or your child’s already available information to reduce the need for redundant medical visits and expenses. For instance, many patients have already undergone allergy evaluations in their journey but have not had the benefit of specialized behavioral support that our team can provide. You or your child’s tailored care plan may change with each visit as needs change.
Our office will facilitate gathering medical history and information, determine the needed specialists for tailored care and schedule the evaluations. Ongoing management of the condition and patient occurs through the center and is achieved through collaboration of the center's gastroenterologists, allergists, nutritionists, social worker, and clinical support staff. A detailed assessment is provided, including recommendations for disease management and treatment. Your care team will also provide advice on quality-of-life issues, strategies for dealing with school and social events and educational materials that families can use with school or caregivers. We also work closely with several patient advocacy groups.
