Siskin Center for Developmental Pediatrics - FAQ's

Help! I lost my new patient packet. What should I do?

Feel free to call our office at 423.490.7710 to have another packet mailed to you. You may also download the new patient forms and print prior to your visit. Forms for school personnel are also available to download. 

How long will our initial appointment last?

Your first appointment may be up to 2 hours in duration. This gives our team the opportunity to understand your concerns, your child’s developmental history, and evaluate your child. We also ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to ensure the check-in process goes smoothly.

Can I bring my other children to our appointment?

It is recommended that parents make childcare arrangements for siblings so that the parent and providers can focus on the child who was referred for an evaluation. 

What should I bring to our first appointment?

Please plan to bring the following:

  • Screening evaluations (hearing, vision), Educational/school testing, or other relevant testing results
  • Individualized Education Plan (IEP)/Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP), psychological, neurological, other evaluation/testing notes, and therapy reports (Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy)
  • List of all medications (prescriptions, over the counter and supplements) 
  • Insurance Card(s) 
  • Copay/Co-insurance or deductible (Our office policy is to take these payments at the time of service.)
