Proceed across the 2E Pedway, continuing straight ahead thru the double doors into the Edmonton Oilers Ambulatory Clinic to the check in desk.

What to Expect

A typical appointment may between 60 – 90 minutes, come prepared. During this time you and your child may be seen by the different healthcare professionals on our team including a: registered dietician, occupational therapist, speech language pathologist, registered nurse, and social worker.

Our team will discuss any concerns you may have regarding your child’s feeding plan, growth and nutrition, ng/g-tube tube concerns, and review of medications. Your feeding specialist may do a meal observation to support you and your child with their oral feeds.

The Stollery Children’s Hospital is a teaching hospital. Be aware that we often have learners in our clinic so you may also see medical residents and healthcare students as members of your child’s care team.
