Diagnosis: Tell us about your child’s diagnosis, treatment plan and whether it is a prenatal or postnatal diagnosis.
Operations: If your child has had surgery, what procedures have they had and by whom?

Child’s age: In the case of a prenatal diagnosis, how far along in your pregnancy are you? If the child has already been born, how old are they?
Health insurance status and information: We will try our very best to work with your insurance company to get approval before we schedule an in-person visit.
