Patient Care

You’re in Expert Hands

Our pediatricians provide patient care at UC San Diego Health and through our partnership with Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego. With a focus on diagnosing and treating children with birth defects and genetic conditions, your child will receive top-notch care from a team whose first priority is helping your family thrive. In addition, our Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Screening Program works with special populations to identify children who may be impacted by prenatal alcohol exposure in order to refer them for diagnostic evaluation and services. Finally, we are researching ways to provide medical expertise in FASD to populations that lack on-site experts using the advanced technology of telemedicine.

  • Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Program

    Screening and Referral for At-Risk Populations

    Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) can be difficult to diagnose. Through our Institute for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Discovery (IFASDD), we have implemented a program to screen at-risk populations such as youth involved with the juvenile justice system and children receiving services from KidStart, a Rady’s program for children with complex developmental, mental health, medical and family needs. Learn more about this screening program and the other important work being done by IFASDD.

  • Telemedicine & FASD

    Digital Communication Has No Boundaries

    Telemedicine is the use of telecommunications (mobile phones, laptop computers, tablets) to provide clinical health care. The Center’s telemedicine program is a medical endeavor in partnership with and funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) in order to provide expertise in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), which is often difficult to diagnose, to a much broader population.

    The FASD telemedicine program that we are developing would allow the opportunity for a practitioner in a remote location to perform a comprehensive examination of a child being evaluated for FASD that could be simultaneously viewed, commented upon and corrected by an FASD expert at a central location. This provides an innovative approach to the diagnosis of FASD in underserved areas throughout the world where physicians with expertise in diagnosis of this disorder are unavailable. This provides the opportunity for a patient in any location to get a specialized and comprehensive examination for FASD.
