How To Request an Initial Appointment

At Siskin Center for Developmental Pediatrics we believe that the best care is coordinated care. Therefore, we accept new patients for medical assessment from a referring physician. This provides us with comprehensive medical history and information and maintains continuity with the child’s primary care physician and specialist.

For that reason, if you believe your child would benefit from our services please contact your primary care physician and ask that they consider referring your child to our Center. We work with more than 200 primary care providers in the Chattanooga region and they are familiar with our referral process.

If you are interested in services from our Developmental Family Therapy Center, referrals are accepted from a referring physician or families may self refer for these programs and services. Click here to learn more about this program and how to start a referral.
