Neurology and Neurophysiology
The Division of Pediatric Neurology of the Montreal Children’s Hospital provides care for children with challenging and complex neurological conditions. Our Division has implemented a screening process for consultations and follow-up of children requiring neurological intervention. While we treat children with any complex neurological conditions, we do not offer consultation or treatment for the following categories of referrals: children with routine headache who have not received a course of migraine prophylaxis; behavioural disorders (i.e. oppositional defiance disorder, conduct disorder, episodic dyscontrol syndrome); school related problems (i.e. ADHD, learning disabilities); patients with tics or Tourette's Syndrome already receiving medication intervention; autistic spectrum disorders without neurological co-morbidity; febrile seizures, both typical and atypical; and syncope.
For behavioral disorders, please fax your referral to 514-412-4296
Please note that requests for appointments in Neurology are given after they have undergone a triage process, which can take about 4 weeks:
- If accepted, the referral is entered on our waiting list. The patient is not contacted until we have an opening in a clinic or in one of our associated facilities.
- If a referral does not meet the hospital’s referral criteria, the referral is returned to the referring physician with instructions. We note when the referral was returned and indicate why in our records.
If you have requested an appointment via our website, please be mindful of the above triage process. If you have questions about the status of your referral, please note that a status update can only be provided once this triage process has been completed, which may take about 4 weeks. Thank you.
