Medical Services

Experts in comprehensive care.

Pediatricians and nurses specializing in child abuse pediatrics provide services on-site to evaluate and address medical and physical needs.

The Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center believes that all children who have been abused or neglected deserve to have access to a medical exam. Through a partnership with the Medical University of South Carolina Department of Child Abuse Pediatrics, we have board-certified child abuse pediatricians, as well as pediatric nurse practitioners, who provide comprehensive forensic medical exams on site at Dee Norton. The medical exams identify any medical issues that need attention and provide reassurance to the caregiver and the child regarding any concerns they might have about the child’s body.
