What to expect at your first visit

Our team of specialists will greet you and assist in checking you in to confirm your information is correct. Next, a nurse or medical assistant will greet the child and family and show them to the vitals area where they will obtain your child's height, weight, vital signs and then review your child's medical history with you. A pediatric pulmonologist will meet you and work with you and the child on a diagnosis and treatment plan. The average length of pulmonology visits is around 30 to 60 minutes.
