Patient Information

Referral Process

Here at Pediatric Pulmonary Services we accept referrals from your child’s primary care provider, or any specialty health care provider they are seen by. There is a referral form that can be obtained by calling our office, or downloading here on our website. Referrals can also be placed through EPIC, if referring health care provider is an EPIC user.

Health care providers can also refer your child here for Pulmonary Function Testing only. We will conduct the breathing test, read and report on it, and send over the information to the primary care provider. From there, if your PCP would like further consultation for you, we can provide that.

Families can also call our office directly to make self-referrals, and we can decide together if of our services are necessary based on a brief history obtained via the phone. 

Forms & Downloads

Nutmeg Pediatric Pulmonary forms are listed below and can be printed for your convenience.

The Patient Registration Form, New Patient Questionnaire may be completed in advance and brought to the office during your first visit. This will save you time by not having to complete these forms while in the office.

Telehealth appointments are available for follow up appointments based on circumstance and individual patient needs.  However, for an initial consultation, it is best for your child to be seen in person by one of our providers.

To start, we work with a referring pediatrician around involving other sub-specialists. When other sub-specialists are already involved, they are included in all communications.

Because of the nature of pulmonary, gastroenterology, ear nose and throat (ENT) and allergy & immunology, most pediatricians who refer to our practice, are comfortable with us making those referrals directly. 

We have a substantial program for children who have tracheostomies and who may also be on home ventilators. Additionally, we have a number of patients on non-invasive mechanical support for their breathing at home.

Children with complex medical needs require the support of a medical home.  Many pediatricians provide a medical home for these children. There are some pediatricians or family practitioners who rely on our practice for the medical home coordination. This is a service we happily provide.

Children with complex medical needs periodically require interventions in the operating room. In these instances we go out of our way to ensure that any other sub-specialist involved, who may be considering procedures, can coordinate with us to limit the frequency of general anesthesia to which these children are exposed.

In our practice our patients and their parents/caregivers are always considered an integral part of the treatment team.
