My child has
Your opinion means a lot. We'd love to hear your thoughts on how we're doing.
As the director of neurology at Cook Children's, I'd like to introduce you to our neurology services. We have grown dramatically in the past two decades. Initially, a small private practice, we were the first specialty practice to join the Cook Children's Physician Network in 1994. Since that time, we have grown to a group of nine neurologists. We take care of children with seizures, headaches, neuromuscular disorders and genetic or acquired illnesses and injuries that affect the brain. From this broad patient population, we've developed specialized 'signature' programs in epilepsy, movement disorders, and neurorehabilitation, and have been recognized nationally for our expertise.
From my perspective as a clinician, and as chairman of the Cook Children's Physician Network, and vice chair of the Cook Children's Healthcare System Board, I am honored to be part of this innovative and very successful organization. Thank you for inquiring about Cook Children's.

What Should I Do if I'm Alone with a Child Who Has a Seizure?Don’t panic! If you see your child (or any child) convulsing, take a deep breath. It’s more important that you remain calm.
