Moreover, any wellness services provided to your child by DKB Peds is simply intended to help you and your child make their health decisions after consulting with your child’s primary care doctor. Wellness services are not medical services, and you should consult with your child’s doctor before making any health changes for your child, especially any changes related to a specific diagnosis or condition. Any information provided by DKB Peds during a wellness session is not intended to replace a one-on-one relationship with a qualified health care professional and is not intended as medical advice, nor is it information that is intended to diagnose, treat, prevent, or cure any disease or condition.
