Epidermolysis Bullosa Clinic Visits
Our outpatient Epidermolysis Bullosa Clinic occurs once a month, usually on the third Friday of the month. The clinic is staffed by highly skilled pediatric specialists, experienced in the care of children with epidermolysis bullosa.

When you contact our EB Clinic, one of our staff members will mail you a packet of information and forms to fill out before your scheduled appointment. Alternatively, you may download the EB Patient Information Form below. These forms will provide us with important information, which will enable us to better care for your child. Please complete these forms prior to your visit with us. You may fax the completed form to (650) 498-4209.
To help us provide quality care for your child, please bring the following to your scheduled visit:
- • List of current medications
- • Your child's regular primary care provider's contact information
- • Bandaging materials for one dressing change (our nurse will assist with dressing care during the visit)
- • If this is your child's first visit with us, please bring his/her medical records for our review (such as laboratory results, biopsy results, genetics testing, growth chart)
- • The completed packet of information and forms: EB Patient Information Form (PDF)
At your first clinic visit, we will be spending a lot of time getting to know your child. This visit may take 2-4 hours. At subsequent follow-up visits, less time may be needed depending on how severe your child's condition is. A complete visit consists of the following:
- • Discussion of your questions and concerns
- • Evaluation by our team of doctors
- • Meeting with our social worker
- • Full skin examination with dressing changes (assisted by our nurse)
- • Photographs
- • Laboratory tests with our lab technicians who are familiar with EB skin, and are skilled at taking blood from our EB patients
After this comprehensive visit, we will send a report to your child's regular provider to ensure continuity of care. We look forward to taking care of your child. Please contact us with any questions.
