Pediatric Infectious Diseases Consultation

A child may need a specialist if a general pediatric provider cannot address a relatively detailed concern.  In many cases, the general provider will make this determination and refer your child to an infectious diseases specialist.  When necessary, we are available to provide this specialty consultation.  Please complete the New Patient Registration online or fill out the packet in the Patient Forms section and bring it with you at the first visit.
