We’re doing everything we can to make our patients’ and families’ lives easier. Thanks to our highly trained nurse practitioners, we have more Neurology appointments available than ever before. Here are some ways to access services and support.

  1. Call us! Our main number, 617-355-6388, is now open for extended hours (8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.).
  2. One-stop scheduling: Our new centralized scheduling system lets you book all your appointments at once.
  3. Email and text reminders: Sign up for convenient reminders and confirm your appointments by simply emailing or texting us back.
  4. Visit our convenient suburban locations: In addition to the main hospital in Boston, our neurologists and neuroscience nurses hold hours at seven satellite locations. Some offer specialty services including visits for learning disabilities, EEG testing, neuropsychological testing, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy and stroke.
  5. Saturday hours: Families needing to make Saturday visits can use our Lexington location. Go through our main number or contact the Lexington location directly.
  6. Get a second opinion online: Families living far from Boston can now receive an Online Second Opinion for a modest fee. At the link you’ll be asked to provide medical records and other information. A Boston Children’s neurologist will review your records and provide an opinion on your diagnosis and treatment plan.
  7. Bring us into your pediatrician’s office: We now offer many “shared care” programs with providers in the community, maintaining ongoing communication and providing guidance and consults. When you come for a Neurology visit, we quickly report results back to your pediatrician and discuss how best to coordinate your child’s care. 
  8. Care integration 
  9. Support for bullying: Boston Children’s BACPAC program was founded in 2009 as an anti-bullying resource for physicians, caregivers, families and school administration.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
