  • Innovation and research investment for improved care.

Coordinated Care

Our highly trained medical specialists deliver collaborative, coordinated care to diagnose and treat complex aerodigestive problems in your child. The Aerodigestive Center team includes physicians and healthcare professionals who specialize in:

  • Pediatric otolaryngology.
  • Pediatric pulmonology.
  • Pediatric gastroenterology.
  • Feeding and swallowing therapy.

In addition to our specialists who regularly evaluate each patient, we also offer referrals for sleep physicians, surgeons, geneticists and others.

All Aerodigestive Center medical specialists review recommendations and develop unified care plans together, eliminating the typical stress parents encounter when navigating multiple visits to medical specialists on their own. We also assist with scheduling related office visits and diagnostic procedures, and connect you with a care coordinator who serves as a point of contact through all phases of your child’s care.
