The Outpatient Diagnostic Referral Program at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta offers comprehensive evaluation and diagnostic services including:
- Consultation regarding medically challenging diagnoses
- Outpatient evaluation as a second opinion or to determine if further consultation or evaluation is necessary
- Coordination of multidisciplinary care on an outpatient basis for a child with multiple medical conditions
Shared knowledge between the primary care provider and the Children’s hospitalist is important to providing quality patient care. We keep the child’s primary care physician informed of the patient’s progress to insure continuity of care. In every case the patient is returned to the referring physician for follow up.
