• We understand that navigating that care can be challenging and it is our job to help coordinate that care


• As primary care providers, we serve as the central link to specialists, helping to interpret and coordinate the recommendations of those specialists


• As the medical team who knows you well, we keep your child and your family at the center of those recommendations


• We ensure to have direct communication with the speciality providers and to schedule family meetings with the family, patient, and all providers involved in your child’s care

PATIENT CENTERED-MEDICAL HOME
