Questions to ask about your child’s appointment

Our physicians love it when you ask questions. It’s good to be informed so you and your child can get the answers you need. To help understand what you can to do to actively participate in the treatment and recovery journey, here are some common questions:

  • What will treatment look like for my child?
  • Will my child need physical therapy?
  • Will the treatment process be painful for my child? If so, how can I help with pain management?
  • How might this injury impact my child in the future?
  • What does follow-up care involve?
  • Will this injury impact my child’s future growth or mobility in any way?
  • What if the provider I want my child to see does not have any openings for several months?
  • Will I still be seen if I do not have a referral?
  • If my child is a return patient and we need to have x-rays taken prior to the appointment, do we go straight to outpatient radiology?
