Your child’s first visit to the Urogenital Center can last one or more days, depending on his or her needs.
During the first visit, the pediatric urologist will provide a thorough exam and talk to you about your child’s medical history and concerns. Depending on your child’s condition, he or she may see other specialists, such as a pediatric nephrologist (kidney specialist) or colorectal surgeon. We may schedule tests for your child on this day as well.
At the end of the first visit, our team will meet with your family to talk about findings, present initial treatment recommendations and answer your questions. If more tests are needed before treatment can begin, we will schedule them as quickly as possible.
Your child’s care team will meet regularly to make sure your child receives excellent, well-coordinated care. Our pediatric urologists are always available to communicate with referring physicians to provide care updates, talk about test results or discuss the treatment plan.
