What to expect

A team evaluation will involve seeing many specialists. The time involved varies depending on each patient’s needs. A Cleft Team visit is a half-day visit and Craniofacial Team Visit and 22q Team Visits are full days. After the evaluations are complete, the providers meet face-to-face in a team meeting to develop a care plan, which is subsequently shared with the family. Do not be afraid to let us know if there is anything we can do to make your team visit a good experience.
