We provide medical examinations for children and teenagers who have symptoms or behaviors that may cause concern of physical or sexual child abuse.
Here is what to expect when visiting the the center:
- When you arrive for your child’s appointment, you will be asked to complete a medical history for your child and provide insurance information.
- Before your child’s medical exam, members of our team will meet with you to answer any questions you might have and explain the medical exam to you.
- As you are meeting with the team, your child will meet with a child life specialist and patient care tech who will check your child’s height, weight, blood pressure and temperature. Your child will be allowed to explore the medical exam room and the equipment used and will be given choices of things to do during the exam.
- Your child’s medical exam will be done by a doctor or a nurse practitioner who will take a close look at your child’s whole body, including his eyes, ears, mouth, stomach and genital area. Your child’s exam will be a lot like when he goes to the pediatrician or clinic for a well checkup.
