Family centered care

Patients and families are very important members of our medical team, and we will work with you and your family throughout your child’s course of treatment.

Every member of our team is specially trained to care for young patients, which means that your child will be in the best hands. Your child’s primary neurologist or pediatric neurology nurse practitioner will oversee your child’s medical care. If necessary, she will invite doctors from other medical areas at Boston Children’s Hospital onto your child’s team. You may also work with some of our nurses, all of whom are trained in child neurology.

Your appointment

At Boston Children’s Hospital, we consider you to be a central part of your child’s care team. We will work together with you to evaluate your child’s condition and to develop the best treatment plan for her.

At your first appointment in the Neurology department, we will depend on you to help us get to know your child and her condition. Please take the time to fill out any forms we send you. These will help us better understand your concerns and questions and your child’s medical history.

We may also ask you to send medical records from previous evaluations your child may have had at other facilities.

On the day of your appointment, it is important that you allow 30-45 minutes to park and register. Directions are available here. Please note that if you are late, we may need to reschedule your appointment.

If you are coming to one of our subspecialty programs, please contact that program directly for more information on what to expect during your visit.

If you are coming to our laboratories for a diagnostic test, you and your child probably have a lot of questions about what to expect. Our technologists specialize in working with children: Your child will be tested by someone who is dedicated to providing excellent, compassionate care for your child. You can stay with your child throughout testing.

If you have billing and insurance questions prior to your visit please contact our Business Office at 617-919-4330.

Coming to Boston Children’s

Boston Children’s For Patients and Families website introduces you to the wide array of support services available to families at Boston Children’s. The hospital experience tab offers suggestions on how you can talk with your child about coming to the hospital.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
