Pediatrics – Grow Clinic
For Medical Professionals
Refer a Patient
We are committed to providing a high level of assistance to our physician colleagues within BMC and outside of the BMC system, as well. Whether for diagnostics, treatment, a single consultation, second opinion or ongoing follow up, our physicians will keep the consulting physician fully informed of the patient's treatment plan and coordinate long term management.
- The waiting time for new FTT children is 1-6 weeks, depending on the severity of the nutritional condition and age of the child (the youngest and most severely malnourished are prioritized). This is a substantial improvement from when the Clinic first opened, and is attributable to the generosity of our donors.
- Effort is made to match patient families with nutrition and medical providers fluent in their language (currently Spanish, Portuguese and French) or to utilize the help of dedicated outreach staff for Vietnamese and Haitian Creole patients.
