Teen/Adult Down Syndrome Clinic

The Christiana Care Teen & Adult Down Syndrome Clinic at the Rocco A. Abessinio Family Wilmington Health Center was co-founded by the now retired Dr. Lou Bartoshesky and runs the 2nd and 3rd Monday of every month. The clinic is not meant to be a primary care clinic but offers a comprehensive, interdisciplinary team to address the specific needs of teens and adults with Down Syndrome.
