Your Visit

 

Recognizing children dealing with IBD have individual needs, we have developed several clinics to assist children and their families in meeting the challenges of living with IBD.

Comprehensive New Diagnosis Clinic

We have developed the Comprehensive New Diagnosis Clinic to equip children newly diagnosed with IBD and their families with an understanding of their IBD diagnosis, the approach to treatment, and where to turn to for additional support. During the appointment you will meet our experienced multidisciplinary IBD team including:

  • Nutritionist: Review the importance of diet in the treatment of IBD
  • Nurse educator: Discuss the importance of regular follow-up and laboratory monitoring; introduction to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), support groups and other resources
  • Nurse practitioner: Review diagnosis and treatment options
  • Social worker: Review the social impact of IBD
  • Pediatric gastroenterologist: Discuss our current understanding of the cause of IBD

IBD Consultation Clinic

Our IBD Consultation Clinic is designed for children with an established diagnosis of IBD to address concerns families may have about the certainty of the diagnosis or when prior treatments have failed.

At this clinic, you and your child will meet with one of our pediatric IBD experts who will perform a thorough physical exam, review prior records and studies, and provide recommendations for further evaluation and treatment.

To provide a complete evaluation and informed recommendations, we will need the following studies and records prior to the visit to review:

  • Images and reports from past CT scans, MRIs, and X-rays
  • Pathology slides and reports from previous colonoscopies and upper endoscopies 
  • Medical records from your current gastroenterologist
