Contact Your Neurologist - For Patients and Families

For emergencies: Call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

It is difficult to give strict guidelines about when to go to the emergency department (ED). In general, if you think your child is in immediate danger, you should call 911 or go (safely) to the nearest ED.

For urgent needs or general medical concerns: Contact your child’s primary care provider (PCP).

If your child’s PCP needs additional information or guidance, she/he can contact Pediatric Neurology for advice.

For daytime neurological issues: Leave a message for our nurse at 801-587-7575.

The nurse line is available Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 4:00pm. We return calls within 2 business days. Due to the high volume of calls we receive, we ask that you leave a detailed message about why you are calling us.

We recommend you talk to the neurology nursing staff first. They are very experienced in pediatric neurology and can handle most patient related phone calls. If they cannot answer your questions, they will discuss the issues with the neurologist. Then the nurse or the neurologist will call you back. Often the neurologist you want to speak with may not be immediately available, but he or she will address your concerns as soon as possible.

After hours, nights, weekends and holidays: Call PCMC 801-662-1000 for the on-call neurologist.

The on-call neurologist or neurology resident can help you with urgent neurological problems that can’t wait until the next working day. This covers issues such as sudden change in seizure frequency, a child who vomited up medications, or other urgent problems.
