How often do your children have doctor appointments?

 I am so excited. We have finally gotten to a point where we only see the Neurologist 2x a year, the Ophthalmologist 1x a year and the Podiatrist 2x a year.  Of course we see our Pedi for regular check ups, but to finally have the specialist appointments at a mininum is really nice.

How often do your children have to see their doctors?

We're still in the early process of new conditions so still lots of appts, and new specialists. Seems like at least once a month a test or a doctor.

We have appts monthly just differs who. We are down to Neuro every 4 months. Pulmonology once a year (woot!!). GI every other month (only happened twice so far that we made it that far apart). And we upped genetics from every 6 month's to every 3 months. Then throw pedi in there a few times a year (plus monthly emails).

the developmental ped every 3-6 months depending on his regression or progress.  

primary care 1time each year

new - neurologist every 4-6 months until we find out what is wrong.

dentist every year

lead testing every year

then he has tons of therapists.
