Expertise Across all Neurosciences Disciplines

At Arkansas Children’s Hospital, medical care is coordinated across all neurosciences disciplines for both routine or complex neurological conditions and diseases. This seamless continuity of care is provided by expert physicians and clinical staff who are specially trained in pediatric care. While on site or at home, we work together for optimal care and consistent communications. Patients or family members are given the opportunity to communicate with the same nurse consistently to provide better continuity of care and to address any questions or concerns in between clinic visit appointments.
