Diagnostic testing for pediatrics and infants
Children's bodies are different because they are growing and developing. Diseases affect them differently too. And because most children are not old enough to understand what is happening to them, they require special comforting and gentle expertise when they need to have diagnostic imaging tests and other procedures. We understand that children can be intimidated by the environments where some tests take place. We make every effort to design our exam rooms to be calming and pleasant spaces where equipment that might be threatening to children is visible as little as possible. Our kid-friendly staff is specially trained to help make the process easier for each child when tests and procedures need to be performed.
It is important to understand the services your child needs before you arrive for the procedure. The information provided here will help answer some of your questions, cut down on your waiting time before your child's procedure and provide necessary information for your physician.
