I’ve been trying to contact the CHKD Nuss Center for several weeks now to no avail. I’ve left a voicemail, submitted an online request, tried calling to no response... is this normal? I want to get the ball rolling but I’m not sure what I should be reasonably expecting in terms of wait time.
Sometimes it can take their office staff a while to get back with you. I would suggest to keep trying to call them a couple times throughout the day until someone is able to answer your call. Once you talk to them, they are friendly and should be able to schedule a consultation within a month or so.
Sorry for the delayed response! They never did get back to me but eventually I got someone on the phone. Moved on to the next step of ordering tests through my PCP which in itself was a bit of a mess. I'm really seeing to a further extent how uneducated doctors seem to be about pectus excavatum (not like I didn't already know that from growing up with it).
