FAQs for Families
Frequently asked questions
Why is there a need for behavioral health assessments?
By completing B-Vitals©, you help your doctor have a better understanding of your child’s emotional and behavioral concerns. When identifying problems early, you can fix them before they become more serious.
Why should the doctor know all of this information?
Emotional issues frequently present themselves as physical symptoms. Your doctor might not find a physical cause and may not be able to offer proper treatment. B-Vitals© will help your doctor quickly assess your child and offer recommendations.
I am a guardian and do not know all of the child's information. What should I do?
The more information you are able to provide, the more accurate B-Vitals© will be. Please give as much detail as you can so the doctor is aware of your concerns.
What if I don’t follow the recommendations the doctor gives me?
Following the provided recommendations will help you resolve your child’s problems. If this is unsuccessful, ask your doctor for a referral to a professional who can help you.
What happens to this information if we go to a new doctor?
Your doctor can forward this information to the new doctor.
Who has access to my child's information?
The only people that can access this information are those to whom you have signed a release of information or may have legal permission.
How do I get more recommendations?
Additional information and recommendations can be accessed from the "For Families" section at www.B-Vitals.com.
Can I complete B-Vitals© without my doctor knowing?
Not at this time. B-Vitals© was designed to be a collaborative relationship between you and your doctor in order to help your child.
Will B-Vitals© label my child?
