New Patient Information

A referring doctor or primary care provider must send in a request for a new appointment with Pediatric Neurology. Once this referral is received, patients can schedule an appointment.

Pediatric Neurology clinics are held in several locations in the Salt Lake Valley area. Not all providers or services are available at all locations. When scheduling your appointment, please make sure to inquire where your clinic visit will occur. You can check the Pediatric Neurology Academic website for maps and directions or ask for a map to be mailed to you.

First Appointment

On the day of your appointment, it is important that you allow at least 30 minutes to park and register. Please note that if you are late, we may need to reschedule your appointment. If you cannot make it to an appointment, please call our schedulers as soon as possible (801-587-7575). We can re-schedule your appointment and also try to fill that appointment time for someone else.

Please bring any medical records relevant to your child's care with you. This includes copies of laboratory testing, medical records, MRI, CT scans or EEGs your child has had. It is very important to bring copies of the actual MRI or CT scan images on DVD or CD. These can be obtained from the facility where those studies were done. You may need to fill out a Release of Information and send it to the other physician's offices or other hospitals in order to obtain this information.

Since the information communicated during an appointment is often complicated and of great importance to you, we strongly recommend that you do not bring other children with you to the appointment.

At your child's appointment you will meet with a member of the Pediatric Neurology division and discuss a plan of care for your child. In some cases laboratory tests (such as blood tests) or medical imaging (such as brain MRIs) will be ordered. Many lab tests take 3 - 8 weeks for results. We will contact you if any of the results are abnormal. At your child's next appointment we will discuss the results of all of the testing.

You may have copies of the neurology visit note sent to you. To do this, your child must have a Release of Information on file, updated every year. You can download this form, have it notarized, and sent to us to keep on file. Alternatively, you can ask to fill out this form at your clinic visit and submit it then.

Follow Up Appointments

Depending on your child’s condition, follow up appointments may be recommended with your primary care provider or in neurology clinic, or both. The follow up appointment will usually be shorter than your first visit. Many neurologists have full schedules so it is important to schedule an appointment at least 3 months in advance if your child needs a follow up visit.
