Doctor-Parent Communication

Share This:

Doctor-parent communication can be essential for helping your child reach their full potential. Watch this role play between a doctor and a parent at a well-baby visit. The parent expresses concern about her son’s development and, at first, the doctor gives her an unsatisfactory response. Upon further discussion, the doctor requests that the mother keep a diary of her son’s behavior and development. He then suggests a referral for a second opinion, including a full screening/evaluation for the baby. Track your baby’s development and bring this information with you to your well-baby visits to discuss with your healthcare provider and ensure your baby is on the right track.

This is a clip from the “Is My Baby Okay” video. Watch the full video.
