Palliative care is appropriate for all ages (from birth to young adult) and at any stage of a serious illness. But we recommend requesting palliative care early in your child’s illness.
How can I request a referral?
You can ask any member of your child’s health care team for a palliative care consult. Tell your child’s primary care or attending doctor, nurse or other caregivers that you are interested in having palliative care as an extra layer of support. Your child and family may receive palliative care services in the hospital or during clinic visits.
If you would like to schedule an appointment, refer a patient or speak to our staff, please call our offices at 512-324-0197.
Virtual medicine and telehealth
Specialty care is now as close as your computer, laptop, cellphone or tablet. Our clinic is equipped with cameras, microphones, and specialized equipment that allows patients and families to have consultations and exams without the expense of traveling to our main clinic. Telemedicine provides coordinated care and ease of access that families in outlying areas wouldn’t have otherwise.
Based on the diagnosis, a patient may have to be seen in person for the first visit. Contact us at 512-324-0197 for information on our telemedicine services.
