A.J. is a 4th grader who loves to read. A.J.’s teacher noted he was distracted and having trouble concentrating. He complained that his eyes hurt but he wasn’t able to get in to his doctor for 3 weeks. His teacher suggested he visit the Hazel clinic. Dr. Marcia, a Hazel healthcare provider, came on the iPad and noted the red eyes as well as congestion and cough. She determined it was seasonal allergies, prescribed an over-the-counter allergy medication, which was pre-approved by A.J.’s parents. Since a physician prescribed the medication, the school nurse could administer it. And A.J. was soon back in class. A complete discharge summary was provided to A.J.’s parents and his primary care physician with the recommendation to discuss an allergy plan.Read more about A.J

Soraya is a 6th grade student who has missed more than 14 days of school this year. After visiting the Hazel clinic multiple times with numerous somatic complaints, Dr. Rob determined that Soraya’s symptoms were stress induced and mental health support was needed. Together with the school social worker and Soraya’s mother, they discovered she was not taking her medication or going to therapy to treat her mental health issues. A plan was developed to help Soraya continue the counseling she needed and help her manage the challenges causing her symptoms.Read more about Soraya
Nicholas passed out in class. He was evaluated by the school nurse who contacted Hazel provider Dr. Rob. During the exam, Dr. Rob and the school nurse noted Nicholas had periods of inattention, much like a pause. Nicholas was diagnosed with absence seizures, common in young kids and difficult to diagnose. Nicholas’ mom was contacted and provided a referral to a pediatric neurologist. While waiting for his appointment, Nicholas was seen in the clinic three more times. Dr. Rob and the school nurse continued their follow up with Nicholas’ mom to ensure he was seen by the specialist and given the proper medication to control his seizures.
