child-neurology9Our Pediatric Neurology Department was founded by Dr. John D. Wooten, III, MD in 2000.

How to Refer a Patient:

Our Pediatric Neurology Department does require a referral from a pediatrician/Primary care physician. We do request any background and pertinent office notes. This enables us to provide the most meaningful initial consultation possible. After the appointment, our assessment will be sent to you for your records and any additional follow-up.

Ways to refer include:

To ensure an optimal first visit, our providers do require that the parent(s) or guardian be with their child.  This is critical to obtaining accurate history  and information which allows our providers to provide the best possible care.  For subsequent visits, if another family member will be bringing a child, we will need written authorization from the parent or guardian designating that person as the consenting adult for the established patient office visit.
