Talking with Your Child About Medical Care
Children may have questions or get anxious when they go to the doctor. We help you know what to tell your child, and when.Learn More
Please bring the following information to your first appointment:
After the first visit, let the office staff know if you change insurance, move to a new address, or switch to a different pharmacy.
If you cannot make your appointment as scheduled, please let us know as soon as possible.
Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time so you can fill out any additional paperwork. Children do best when they are engaged in something fun. Bring along books, toys, games, and comforting items, such as a blanket or stuffed animal. We recommend you also bring your child’s favorite snacks and drinks. Babies and toddlers might need extra diapers or a change of clothes.
Our Family Advisory Council, made up of parents of children who have received care at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital, has suggestions for questions you might want to ask your child’s doctor:
Before you leave the office, stop by the reception desk. You can make your next appointment, pay the copay, ask for any referral forms, and request prescription refills.
You can also talk with the team at the reception desk about how to manage your child’s appointments, request prescription refills, and view test results by enrolling in our patient portal, NYU Langone Health MyChart, and requesting proxy access to your child’s medical records.
