Chronic Disease Follow Up
If your child has a chronic disease or disorder, we’re here for you, every step of the way
At Westchester Health Pediatrics, we understand that when your child has a chronic disease or disorder, it can be very stressful for the whole family. That’s why we want you to know that we are here for you, whenever you need us, with advice, medication, referrals, ongoing monitoring and any support you may need.
We recommend that you and your child come in for regular office visits. This way, we can stay in frequent contact with each other and stay on top of any changes or developments in your child’s condition.
During these visits, we will check on your child’s progress, look for any changes, make sure he/she is on track with taking the proper medical treatment, and possibly adjust the medication. If we feel your child should see a specialist, we’ll provide a referral and be a helpful link between you and the specific expert.
At Westchester Health Pediatrics, we treat the following diseases and disorders:
- Cerebral palsy
- Sickle cell anemia
- Celiac disease
- Cystic fibrosis
- Mental illness
