At Boston Children's Hospital, our mission is to serve as the world’s leader in patient-centered pediatric urologic care through our commitment to clinical expertise, education, discovery and innovation.
We also understand that the family is the most important source of emotional support and comfort for children, and family members are a vital component of each child's health care team.
Our highly informed and caring staff is available to answer questions and guide you through the process. Please call anytime to speak with your child's nurse or doctor at 617-355-7796.
Make an appointment
If your child has been diagnosed with a urological condition, or you are interested in a second opinion, the first step is to call us at 617-355-7796. We also recommend contacting your child's primary care physician or pediatrician to request a referral to see one of our specialists if your insurance plan requires it.
When you call, we aim to connect you with a live person, but our menu-driven phone directory will also connect you to the right person. It will also allow you to refill a prescription, leave a message for a nurse if you have a question, or speak with someone immediately if you have an urgent concern.
