Preparing for your clinic visit
As a patient at The Children’s Heart Clinic, we understand the stress involved in bringing your child in for their first appointment. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible, prepare you with all of the information we can, while providing the best care for your child.
Knowing what to expect helps make the first visit less stressful. Before the visit, talk about going to see a doctor with your child. Show your child a photo of the doctor from our website. With younger kids, it may also help to draw pictures (stick figures work just fine!) or act out the upcoming visit with a stuffed animal as the patient.
