HOW CAN WE HELP YOU? Call 1-800-TRY-CHOP
The Pediatric Headache Program offers evaluation and treatment for children with chronic migraines and persistent headaches who have not responded to standard treatments with their community neurologist.
For appointment and authorization questions, please call 215-590-1719 during business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Once we have reviewed any outside records, you will be contacted to schedule an appointment. We match patients to the most appropriate provider in general neurology or the multidisciplinary headache program based on headache characteristics and availability.
