Your Visit

 

Procedures are rarely performed during your child's clinic visits. The most common tests ordered at the clinic are electroencephalography (EEG) and brain imaging (CT or MRI).

Before your visit

Your primary care doctor must provide a referral to our neurology clinic.

First visit

Please bring the following items:

  • Records of visits to other neurologists, if applicable
  • MRI and CT films of previous studies when not performed at Vanderbilt
  • Reports of the studies when the films are not available
  • Bottles or records of all medicines your child is currently taking

Hospitalization

Sending a child from the clinic to the hospital is uncommon for us. Most situations are handled in the clinic.

After your visit

Follow-up clinic appointments are usually arranged prior to discharge. A discharge summary is always sent to your primary care doctor. We can provide a summary for you as well.

If you have questions following your visit, or need to know lab results, please contact the physician who cared for your child or visit the My Health at Vanderbilt website.
