What happens at a visit?
At the first clinic visit, patients are seen by a pediatric dermatologist who will get a complete medical history and perform a physical exam. If needed, the patient may undergo treatment or blood tests.
After the medical history is reviewed and examination and test results are available, a detailed plan of treatment is discussed with the family. We try to complete this process at the first visit, which may take 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the complexity of the problem.
Patients are seen by a board-certified dermatologist. The pediatric dermatologists on staff at Children's Hospital also are on the faculty of The Medical College of Wisconsin. They work with and help train medical students as well as residents in dermatology and pediatrics. Since Children's Hospital is a teaching institution, these doctors in training may be involved with your care. The care they provide is supervised and coordinated by faculty.
