6. Moving from Pediatric to Adult Health Care

Introduction:

Changing from the doctor you have now to a new doctor may be hard in some ways. The first step is finding a new doctor who takes care of adults. The second step is getting to know this new doctor and having him or her get to know you.  You also need to be sure that your new doctor gets the health information from the doctor you used as a child. Your parents, siblings or service coordinator can help you do this.
