We have providers from Brooke Army Medical Center/SAMMC who travel to CRDAMC to provide care. If we are unable to provide care at CRDAMC, patients will be referred to San Antonio (BAMC/SAMMC) or to local health care providers, local hospitals, and specialty hospitals when necessary. If your child will be seen at CRDAMC, you will receive a call to schedule an appointment. If you are concerned that your child may have AUTISM, please have your PCM complete appropriate screening exams and place a referral to the Autism Referral Clinic-Toddler (ARC-T) or Developmental Pediatrician for an evaluation. You will need to complete and turn in some forms prior to your appointment being scheduled
