Pediatrician or Primary Care Provider
Your child’s pediatrician or primary care provider (PCP) oversees your child’s overall growth, health, and development. You might see your child’s pediatrician or PCP in an office, clinic, or hospital.
This person will coordinate all areas of your child’s medical care. In addition to receiving routine care, a child with hearing loss may need to see specialists who will look at the child’s specific health needs. These specialists may look at eyes, language or speech needs, genetics, or other areas. Your child’s pediatrician or PCP will help decide which specialists your child should see and when to see them. In this way, your child will receive coordinated care by all of his/her medical providers.
