Your Child's First Clinic Visit with a Pediatric Endocrinologist
Your child's first visit at the Blank Children's Endocrinology Clinic will probably be the longest visit since you may see multiple healthcare providers. We ask that you arrive 15 to 20 minutes early for your child's appointment to complete the registration process. Please plan to be at the clinic for two to three hours.
Prior approvals from your child's primary provider and insurance plan may be necessary before visiting with his or her pediatric endocrinologist.
