Referral Guidelines

Before you make a referral for specialty care, please consult these referral guidelines developed as part of our Co-Management initiative.

Kids’ Center for Bone Health

Children with suspected bone health problems may be referred to the center for evaluation by Connecticut Children’s pediatric endocrinologists. Our multidisciplinary team oversees patient care and will communicate directly with referring pediatricians offering a summary of our tests and recommendations. All pediatric patients receive counseling for appropriate calcium and vitamin D intake, and referrals to Connecticut Children’s nutrition specialists are based on a child’s needs.

To refer a child for a medical evaluation, please call 860.545.9370.

To refer a child for bone density testing (DXA), please call 860.545.9120.
