Physician referrals

You may be referred to our clinic by your child's primary care physician or follow up here after a hospital stay. Children with known or suspected hematology/oncology diagnoses may be seen here by one of our pediatric trained hematologists/oncologists who review your child's medical records and provide an assessment and plan of care for your child and family.

What to expect at your first visit

One of our medical office specialists will greet you and assist you with checking in and verifying that we have all the correct information for the patient to effectively communicate with your family. A nurse or medical assistant will greet the child and family and obtain your child's height, weight and vital signs. They will then verify the patient's medication list, allergies, hospitalizations, surgeries, and obtain a brief history as to the reason for referral to our clinic. Our hematologist/oncologist will meet you and discuss with you your child's medical history, records received, and examine the child and discuss a treatment plan based on the patient's diagnosis or possible diagnosis.

Hematology/oncology visits are around an hour to an hour and a half. In many cases, lab work may be required to aid in diagnosis. Please be sure your child is well hydrated as hydration is very important to this process. The staff will assist in making sure this is a smooth process and your child remains as comfortable as possible.
