Join us on July 13th from 10am-2pm for a Teddy Bear Clinic!
Children can bring (or we will supply) a teddy bear, a favorite doll, or other favorite stuffed animal to the doctor.
Here’s what you can expect:
Upon arrival the Child who will be treated as the Parent:
- Will be asked what is wrong with their “stuffed friend”?
- What their “stuffed friends “name is, and we will apply a name band.
- The child’s parent will be provided the opportunity during the “registration process” to screen for specific concerns related to the child’s medical history, seasonal illness, or anxieties related to healthcare visits. These will be used to help drive the exam of the stuffed animal since the goal is to relieve stressors for the child.
- A chart will be created, and the participants will be escorted to a room for further treatment that will including a fun interactive exam that will include a basic exam and a focused exam for the specified complaint:
- Blood Pressure Check
- Temperature Check
- Listening to the heart and lungs
- Examining ears, throat, smiling to look at teeth, reflexes, & abdominal exam
- Any other appropriately related exam related to the complaint will be addressed.
