We will need to register your child at his or her first appointment. Please arrive a few minutes early for registration and bring your insurance cards, BCMH letter (if applicable) and co-pay with you.
When it is your child’s turn to be seen, a nurse or patient care assistant will record your child’s weight, height and blood pressure. Your child may be asked to urinate in a cup privately in a bathroom. In an exam room, the nurse will ask you questions about your child’s history and medications. The urologist or nurse practitioner will meet you and your child in the exam room. The urologist or nurse practitioner will review your child’s history and your concerns.
Next, the urologist or nurse practitioner will examine your child, focusing on the abdomen, pelvic and outer genital area. The examination will be gentle and non-invasive with respect for your child’s emotional concerns. Once the exam is complete, the urologist or nurse practitioner will discuss recommendations and options for treatment with you and your child. You will have a chance to ask questions and make your own decisions about the best treatment.
Please be aware that many caregivers from other services see patients in our office, so your child may not be called in the order of arrival. You will be seen in order of your appointment time with your care provider.
