How does one arrange for a referral?

There are several methods to arrange for referral to Stuart Developmental Pediatrics:

  1. The primary care provider can place a referral.
  2. Other clinicians working with the child can place a referral.
  3. The family can call directly to arrange an appointment.

The best means to contact this office to arrange the referral includes:
Calling at 512.291.8085
Fax at 1.844. 267.0438
Email at StuartDevoPeds@gmail.com

Each referral will be reviewed to ensure this office can answer the concerns for the child. There are times other specialities may be better suited, such as a Child Clinical Psychologist or Pediatric Neurologist.


What happens after the referral has been placed?

Step 1: This office will contact the family to forward appropriate paperwork, medical intake and age appropriate questionnaires to be completed.

Step 2: The family completes paperwork

Step 3: The family mails in the completed paperwork and copies of relevant past evaluation. (Note: All submitted paperwork must be completed before an appointment will be scheduled).

Step 4: All paperwork is reviewed and questionnaires are scored.

Step 5: The office will contact the family to arrange an appointment.

Step 6: The initial office visit typically takes 90-150 minutes in duration, depending on the complexity of the situation and thoroughness of the intake paperwork. Every effort will be made to provide a determination of a diagnosis, if any, by the end of the visit. There may be times that specialized lab and radiology tests may be needed to confirm a diagnosis. The findings of the evaluation will be reviewed with the family and will recommend a plan of intervention.

Step 7: Follow up is recommended every 6-12 months to monitor progress. If a child is started on medication for behavioral treatment, follow up is much more frequent.


When are the new appointments for an initial evaluation scheduled?

Children 0-5 years are typically scheduled in the morning and school aged children are scheduled in the afternoon.
