Planning for Your Child's Outpatient Visits
Shriners Children's outpatient clinics are where you and your child will have your initial consultation and follow-up visits with our specialists. If you are bringing your child in to be assessed by members of our care team, we will schedule your initial appointment at our outpatient clinic.
If your child has been seen at our hospital before and you need to connect to our outpatient clinic to inquire about something or to schedule an appointment, please call your child's Shriners Children's location directly. You can also log in to your patient portal to book an appointment with using our scheduling tool.
Scheduling and Cancellations
For all outpatient appointments, please arrive early. If you are running late, please contact the hospital directly. If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please give a minimum of three days' notice.
Booking Your Child's Appointment
If your child is accepted for care at Shriners Children's, you will receive a condition of acceptance form along with your initial appointment letter. The form must be signed by the patient's parent or guardian, witnessed by someone age 18 or older. By signing this form you are giving Shriners Children's permission to treat your child.
Once you've received and signed your condition of acceptance letter, you can call the Shriners Children's location where you have been referred to book your child's first appointment.
If your child has already been to Shriners Children's, then their information will be in our system. You can call the Shriners Children's location where they received their care to book any follow-up appointments or log in to your patient portal to book a new appointment.
