What can I expect during my visit?

We will take 3D digital photos and measurements of your child’s head shape, then you will meet with one of our highly trained clinicians who will review the results with you and let you know if treatment is recommended.

The clinician may also recommend some conservative measures for you to try at home to improve your child’s head shape and/or treatment outcomes...Read More

Is there a cost for the consultation?

Our head shape consultations are free! There is no payment or copay required.

How long will the consultation take?

Your appointment will take no longer than 30 minutes, on average.

Will I have to make a decision about treatment at the consultation appointment?

Your treatment decision is important, and will always be a personal one. Our DOC Band cranial helmet is a medically-necessary device and requires a prescription.

The consultation appointment provides families with information which you can discuss with your pediatrician, and then make a treatment decision which is right for your child.
