Evaluation & Fast Track Clinic

Depending on the needs of the patient, there are different ways to refer to neurology.

New Neurology Evaluation

Once we receive this information, our staff will contact the family to schedule the appointment. Alternatively, once the referral is received, patients or their families can call to schedule an appointment for themselves.

Patients with NEW SEIZURES can be seen in the Fast Track Clinic, which has a much shorter wait time than other new patient appointments. To qualify for Fast Track, patients must meet all three of the following criteria:

  1. New onset seizures or concern for seizure
  2. Four weeks of age or older (if younger, then go directly to Emergency Department)
  3. Not seen in our pediatric neurology clinic or evaluated by the inpatient neurology team at PCH within the past three years. if seen within the past three years, ask parents to Contact your Neurologist or Schedule an Appointment for follow up, or the provider can Contact a Neurologist.

To refer to Fast Track, use the referral process above and specify, 'Fast Track Clinic.'
