CARE Clinic Appointments
Patients of the CARE clinic receive a complete assessment of health (medical and lifestyle), laboratory testing if needed, and nutritional counseling.
Some patients also have medical complications that require care from more than one specialist, so treatment by a number of Phoenix Children's Hospital pediatric specialists may also be provided.
Depending on the medical condition and the final treatment plan, long-term follow-up care may be provided in collaboration with the patient's primary health care provider.
On the first visit, the patient and family meet with a pediatric endocrinologist to review the patient's medical and family history. The practitioner will also perform a physical exam and take some measurements including waist/ hip circumferences and body fat percentage. A short-term treatment plan will be developed.
New Patient History Forms
After the initial consultation, some lab tests may be ordered to better determine a long-term medical treatment plan. If blood work is ordered, you may have it done at Phoenix Children's Hospital or at a Sonora Quest or Lab Corp. location near you.
Follow-up and Nutrition Visit
Once any test results are back from the lab, patients and their family meet to discuss these results with the doctor and determine a medical treatment and follow-up plan. They will also meet with a registered dietitian to discuss nutrition and learn about some healthy lifestyle changes and set short-term and long-term goals.
Long-term follow-up care may be provided by the patient's primary health care provider, specialists at Phoenix Children's Hospital or both.
The CARE Clinic is located on the Main campus. We are located in Clinic D on the 2nd floor of the main hospital building. The closest parking is in the Thomas parking lot.
