Behavioral Health Visit

  • Adequate behavioral health therapy can promote lifelong health and development and the physicians at CPRC can help children and families work thru many behavioral disorders. 

  • Once a referral is made to CPRC, a staff member will typically reach out to the child's caregiver to set up a convenient time for the visit. Every effort is made to accommodate school and work schedules, however, this is not always possible. 

  • CPRC physicians are NOT psychiatrists. They are pediatricians with extensive training in assessing, diagnosing, and treating pediatric behavioral and developmental health concerns. CPRC physicians manage the selection of medications, monitor improvements, and identify side effects along with making referrals for outside therapies and resources. 

  • CPRC physicians have experience in dealing with pediatric behavioral and mental health disorders such as childhood depression, attention-deficient hyperactivity disorder (ADHA), anxiety states inducing PTSD,  oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), conduct disorders, and depression. 

  • Behavioral Health Exams typically last between an hour and a half and two hours. 

  • During the medical evaluation, the physician may ask to speak privately with the parent/caregiver as well as speak privately with the child. 

  • Parents will be asked to complete a set of assessments to review with the physician. Your child may be asked to complete assessments as well.

  • The behavioral health visit will include a detailed medical history as well as a physical examination.  The physical examination is a complete head-to-toe examination including the child's temperature, pulse rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, and current weight/height. 

  • At the completion of the examination process, the physician will identify the primary diagnosis and then have a conversation with the parents and child regarding possible treatment options. 

  • CPRC physicians may also make recommendations for appropriate referrals to further support the child and/or family.  

  • CPRC respects the rights of all we serve. All information at the Center is treated respectfully and protected by state and federal privacy laws. Please let our staff know if we can be of further service.
