We use the standard dosing of medications based upon the weight and age of the child. We also consider the severity of the condition being treated and any underlying conditions specific to that patient.
Whenever we have an issue of a sensitive nature, behavioral or personal, we share with the patient they have the right to speak with the doctor individually, with the parental figures out of the exam room. Those conversations are medically private, and cannot be disclosed to anyone without the permission of the patient – unless they involve threat of harm to self or others.
If you are under 18 years old, you must be accompanied by a legal guardian.
We comply with and agree with the prevailing Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) policies. We ask patients and families to respect the privacy of others.
