Question :What experience should the doctor have?
See if the doctor does an annual Medicare health assessment or coordinates follow-up care. Ask if the doctor has experience with people with intellectual disability, or if they'd like to know more or receive written information. You should also determine whether they coordinate with other disability professionals or if they have a height-adjustable examination bed.
