    We have no limitations. Our patient demographics don’t allow it. There are too many families that simply don’t have the resources to pay for or find sitters for their other kids. 
    We make it work and luckily there are relatively few who bring more than one or two adults.

    I was wondering if anyone could share their policy on visitation in the clinic- ie how many adults are allowed to accompany a child?  Are siblings allowed?  How do you accommodate siblings or additional visitors?  Do you offer any resources to families who do not have alternative options?

    In our clinic we allow up to two adults in clinic with a child and do not allow siblings, however this becomes difficult to manage especially during the summer when school is out and we are actively looking for alternatives to offer our patients.    

    Thank you in advance.
