The Diagnostic Clinic at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health assists physicians who need to refer infants, children and teens for second opinions or consultations. If a physician refers a patient with a complex problem or with a hard-to-diagnose illness, our staff will evaluate the patient. We set a goal of seeing families within three days of a referral. We will call the referring physician within 24 hours of the visit and send a written report within a week of the visit. If additional consultation with other specialty areas is needed, that will be arranged after discussion with the family and the referring physician.
