Pilonidal Care Program | Your Visit

When you are referred to the Pilonidal Care Clinic, our staff will reach out to you to schedule you for a new-patient consultation. In most cases, you will first see us in our Boston location.

Initial Visit:

Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early for your first appointment and bring any medications you are currently taking with you.

We will take a complete history of your child’s pilonidal disease as well as information regarding other medical problems, current medications, allergies, and previous pilonidal treatments to date.

Your Child's Exam:

Once you are called into the exam room, a nurse or clinical assistant may record your child's height, weight and vital signs. You will then be seen by a PA or physician who will conduct a thorough examination. 

Our clinicians will discuss the treatments offered by our program and their recommendations for the best options for your child. No treatments are performed at this visit, but you will have plenty of time to ask any questions you may have.


After your initial consultation, you will be scheduled for a follow-up appointment at our Waltham location to begin treatment.

Please do not hesitate to ask our staff for assistance or information at any stage of the process. You can also reach the medical team via email for non-urgent questions.  We do not recommended email in case of urgent issues.
