My DD has an x-ray scheduled for tomorrow. I didn't schedule, I just spoke to my pediatrician about her in-toeing and got a call from a 'referral consultant'. She scheduled me for an x-ray followed by an appointment with an orthopedist.

 

I am pretty sure that there is nothing structural going. The pediatrician doesn't think there is. And I have a lot of doctors in my family, and none of them are even concerned about it. It was my initiative and all I really wanted from the ped was a recommendation for physical therapy (my insurance doesn't even require a referral) so that we can do some things to help her walking and balance.

 

Would you be okay with an x-ray that is so unnecessary?

No replies :(

 

But I did just call the office and asked whether the orthopedist would see her without an x-ray. They said yes. No x-ray!
