Evaluation and Treatment
We’re committed to providing your child with the best possible care for any rheumatology condition. Our expert providers from several medical disciplines collaborate for your child’s care and use the most advanced treatment methods.
Prior to your child’s visit, we may contact you to discuss the reason for your visit and to answer any questions you might have. Please bring your child’s previous test results with you to the first visit or have your primary care doctor fax them to us at 304-285-7388.
At your child’s first visit, we will do a thorough check-up and assessment of their medical history, including an anxiety and depression screening for any children age 12 and older. You’ll meet Dr. Rosen and his pediatric rheumatology team members – a medical assistant and a licensed practical nurse. Our mascot, Gus, the English sheep dog, is available to visit children during their appointment if they’d like.
