Patients are usually seen by physician referral. If you believe your child would benefit from CPODD services, we recommend you discuss the referral with your current neurologist or pediatrician. We will take self-referrals, but we'll always want to speak with your child's doctor and review your child's records before we can set up a CPODD appointment.
BEFORE an appointment can be scheduled, we request the following records:
hospital discharge summaries
lab reports, particularly studies from spinal fluid if a spinal tap was performed
MRI images, preferably on disk
After reviewing the records, we will contact you to schedule your visit.
