  • Due to high volume of referrals there may be waiting period to see pediatric neurologists. But we are committed to provide pediatric neurology services to the community in timely manner and we try our best to schedule your child ' s appointment as early as possible.

Patients discharged from clinic but want to be seen by neurologist again for similar or different clinical complaints may require new referrals from family physician but we will try to see them within 2 to 3 weeks.
  • We advise patients to book their next follow up appointment (if asked by doctor) before they leave office. If you are not able to book follow up appointment at that time please call back to the clinic to book your routine follow up appointment. Clinic is not responsible to book routine follow up appointment.
  • We also advise all patients to call our clinic to book follow up appointment to discuss results of any tests such as blood tests, EEG, MRI.
  • As we do not receive notification for patient ' s hospital appointment for EEG or MRI test it is patient ' s responsibility to call our clinic to book follow up after the test is done to discuss result.
  • For any emergency follow up please call clinic and we will try to book follow up within one week depending on doctor ' s availability.

  • Be ready to stay in clinic for at least 75 minutes as many appointments may take longer. Also we may have to accommodate emergency appointments from hospital.
  • Bring patient ' s health card and any previous medical records as well as medicines with you. This will facilitate care of your child.
