Comprehensive patient care is one of three critical components of DDC Clinic’s medical services today. What does that mean – how do we operate and what services are available?
We serve patients with complex medical needs, closely following the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) model for a medical home. We provide care that is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate and culturally effective.
We provide medical services for children with over 70 different rare diseases; we are recognized as a leading international medical facility for such complex disorders as
Ganglioside GM3 synthase deficiency
TMCO1 defect syndrome
In addition, we help families with medical supplies and nutrition needs through a patient assistance program and we coordinate on-site sub-specialty services with outside institutions. Click here for information on the hosted specialty clinics.
DDC Clinic has seen more than 500 patients. Demand for our services continues to grow; the clinic has experienced an increase in patient visits by 10% this past year alone. In addition to the local children, our patients come from 21 different counties of Ohio as well as from eight other states (Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Mississippi). All patients served by the clinic have met the established requirements to be classified as children with special health care needs based on the Maternal and Child Health Bureau’s definition.
