For children with difficult-to-diagnose illnesses, the physicians at the Patrick S. Pasquariello Jr. Diagnostic and Complex Care Center recommend consultations with subspecialties when necessary, evaluate subspecialists’ findings, and facilitate communication of any recommendations to you and your child's referring physician.
Managing complex chronic medical conditions
Children with complex chronic medical conditions receive ongoing support from our physicians. Care coordination is provided for children and adolescents who regularly visit with several CHOP specialists due to complex medical issues. Our physicians evaluate the overall picture of your child's health and ensure that you understand the care being delivered to your child. When necessary, we facilitate communication amongst your child's providers in order to assist you in navigating the medical system.
