The role of General Paediatricians

Dr Quin spoke about the value of involving a General Paediatrician in your child’s care. General Paediatricians have an important role in caring for children with mito, starting from diagnosis and continuing post-diagnosis with assistance in navigating specialists, health treatments and care. The relationships they can build with families create a unique understanding of children and their mito, so your child can receive the best care.
