Worried About Your Child?
Being in a medical setting can be upsetting to a child, so we try to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
Our staff is skilled at calming a nervous child, reducing their anxiety and completing the exam in the shortest time possible. Children can watch videos, and our technologists use a variety of methods to help soothe infants and toddlers during a procedure.
