Within Wesley Pediatric Specialists, you will find our Pediatric Urology Clinic. You may be referred to this clinic by your child's primary care provider or may follow up here after a stay in the hospital. Children with known or suspected urological disorders may be seen here by our pediatric urologist who will provide an assessment and plan of care for your child and family. From childhood through young adults, our physician will provide follow-up visits and coordination of care to provide the best treatments for your child's diagnosis.

First-time visitors: what to expect

At your first visit, your family will be greeted by our medical office specialists who will assist with checking the patient in and verifying that we have all correct information for the patient. This is very important so that we are able to communicate with your family for future visits/communications.

Next, a nurse or medical assistant will greet the child and family and show them to the vitals area where they will obtain your child's height, weight, and vital signs. The nurse will then take the child and family to the next room where they will review your child's medical history with you.

Your child will then be seen and examined by Dr. Donovan who will work with the child and family on a diagnosis and treatment plan. In some cases, lab work such as a UA and/or diagnostic imaging may be required to aid in diagnosis. The staff will assist in making sure this is a smooth process and your child remains as comfortable as possible. The average length of first-time urology visits are around 30 to 45 minutes.
