A Multidisciplinary Approach
At CHOC, our unique partnership with Gastroenterology (GI) doctors, dietitians and feeding therapists make this one-of-a-kind program. We are one of the only programs in the country to offer this type of service. We closely work with our families via secure text-messages and email to ensure you and your child receive answers to your questions in a timely manner.
Our multidisciplinary team includes:
- Cardiologists and Cardiac Nurse Practitioners
- Case managers
- Feeding therapists
What to Expect During A Visit
- A cardiac dietitian will always be a part of the visit. If your child is having a challenge with oral feeding, we will ask the feeding specialist to join the visit.
- If your child is receiving care by a GI specialist, we will schedule the appointment on our “team” day so the cardiac dietitian and GI specialist can work together to provide the care your child needs.
