Domestic & International Adoption Medical Records Evaluations
Let us help to reduce the Adoption Stress for you and you family.
Addressing the Needs of Domestic and Internationally Adopted Children
Our Domestic & International Medicine Adoption Program is designed to help adopting parents navigate the medical, social and psychological aspects of the adoption process, while giving you the tools and knowledge in order to help you make the right decision for your family. We provide pre-adoption evaluations and medical reviews (once a child has been identified) for children from countries all over the world, as well as general Pediatric care afterwards.
Our Adoption Physicians have expertise in adoptive children with special needs, including fetal alcohol syndrome, HIV, cerebral palsy, cleft lip and palate, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other medical and behavioral disorders in adopted children.
Pre-Adoption Consultations and Medical Reviews
Prior to adopting your child, our international adoption medicine experts can help you:
- identify potential medical issues based on a child’s geography and care setting
- review medical records and photos that have been provided (once a child has been identified)
- help you determine potential long-term medical care needs and challenges
- provide on-call telemedicine and support during adoption-related travel
These evaluations are typically covered by insurance and would include:
- 3–4 visits to our office on Long Island New York with your child and family
- determining any prescription, immunization and medical equipment needs
- referrals to other specialists if needed to help come to a specific diagnosis.
- the creation of an individualized long-term care plan for your child and family.

The Adoption Doctors Story
Our doctors provide International Adoption Medicine for the Private practice sector, available to anyone with a computer and telephone. We are not an adoption agency and we do not place children. It is because of this, that we are able to provide unbiased medical evaluations. Our Pre-Adoption medical record service was designed to be an educational and support program for adoptive parents.
Our goal is to educate adoptive parents using the sometimes limited medical information available about their child. It is this knowledge that empowers adoptive parents them to make an educated decision, and not just take a leap of faith. We never tell families which child to adopt and we do not pick out children.
Worlds of innovation
Adopting a child can be a exciting and a stressful time in anyone life. Do not let medical terminology or inconclusive medical records hinder your decision. Let us help you investigate and decipher. There are many subtle words on reports that sound scary to a prospective parent, and are trivial to a medical professional, and there could be things that a agency or parent do not see that are vital to the risk assignment.
Adoption Education Classes
Knowledge is power. Learn as much medical information as you can before receiving you Adoption referral. This way when it does arrive you can better understand the individual situation and your visit with us will be less stressful.
“Adoption is a leap of faith, but with education, knowledge and a great team by your side, this can become a calculated leap of faith”
