How do I deal with an overly-concerned parent?

one thing which helps these days is to say that as our referrals are checked, the specialist would want us to have checked /done x,y,and z before we refer.in some specialties -less so for children - we have local guidelines that explicitly say a referral wd be returned if we haven't declared that we have done x,y,z first.
