He also sees a pt and ot during the year, and will be evaluated by the same behaviorist as his sister during this summer.

Cardiologist - for monitoring of a repaired heart defect (with device implanted), pulmonary hypertension and a small leak in one of his valves.
Endocrinologist - he has hypothyroidism
Feeding clinic/GI - for ongoing feeding issues and reflux
Opthamologist - for regular vision checks. He doesn't have glasses yet, but already has slight vision issues and will need them in the future.
Orthotist - he wears orthotics due to pronating and ligamentous laxity in his feet and ankles.
We used to see ENT, pulmonologist and geneticist regularly, but now see them each every few years for check ups.
I think that's it. Well, besides therapies.
