Kernicterus Contact Us

Patients and Families

Our department receives many requests to evaluate patients. I currently see patients in the inpatient and outpatient services of Children's Mercy Kansas City's Neurology Department. We make and coordinate referrals by email at or by phone at (816) 234-9398. You may be seen in consultation with recommendations for treatment to be carried out locally, or you may receive ongoing care at our clinic, or may opt for a combination of the two.
