Since turning 18, several of my pediatric specialists at the Children’s Hospital have continued to treat me as their patient through adulthood. Knowing how hard it would be to introduce a new doctor to my medical history and find one that has knowledge about my condition, I’m very thankful my pediatric doctors kept me as a patient.
As of this year, I only see one of my pediatric physicians, my metabolic specialist who manages my rare type of Muscular Dystrophy. My mom is also a patient of this doctor seeing as she has the same disease as me.
Are you an adult who is still seen by pediatric physicians?
