Our Comprehensive Pediatric Epilepsy Program offers coordinated scheduling of outpatient clinic visits, diagnostic testing, hosptial admission to the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU), evaluation for surgery, as well as pre- and post-surgical follow-up care.

Same day urgent appointments are available five days a week for new patients who need to be seen urgently (by peer-to-peer physician referral only).


For Referring Physicians/Clinics

Before we can schedule your patient with a pediatric neurologist, we will need the following records faxed to us for professional medical review.

  • Physician order with the reason for referral
  • Completed referral form (see Pediatric Consultation Center Referral Form) to include patient demographic and insurance info with referring physician’s contact information
  • Office/Clinic Notes (last 2 visits)
  • All labs within the past 12 months
  • Brian Imaging Reports (Films/CDs may be requested Prior to Appointment at Neurologist discretion)
  • All EEG, EMG, EP, PSG reports
  • ED/Hospital Discharge Summary reports

If any of this information is not available please obtain or explain status.

We appreciate you entrusting your patient’s care to our team. Please feel free to contact our centralized Referrals and Consultation Office with any questions or concerns.


For Patients & Families

Once your child’s referral has been reviewed and accepted by our team, you will be contacted by a representative from our centralized Referrals and Consultation Center to schedule a new patient appointment.

Once the appointment is scheduled and confirmed, you will receive a confirmation letter via US mail or electronic mail (whichever you prefer). Along with the confirmation letter, you will receive a Welcome Handout with information about our policies and procedures, as well as, a New Patient Information Form. Please complete this form and bring it with you to the first clinic appointment.
