The office practice of pediatric urology is quite different from that of adult urology. First, the office setting in pediatric urology must consider the fact that patients are always accompanied by a parent (or parents), often by siblings as well, and sometimes by an extended family (eg, grandparents). Therefore, waiting rooms and examination rooms need to be larger than those for adults to accommodate the extra people. One also needs to provide diversions (eg, fish tanks, toys) for toddlers and younger children who are often impatient, as well as suitable reading material for both older children and adults. Examination rooms should be well lit, and the ambient temperature should be neither too hot nor too cold.
