Appointments and Referrals

Doctor and family

Effective May 30, 2017, the Cook Children's Grapevine/Colleyville doctors have moved to new locations. Dr. Harston and Dr. Arca will continue to practice at existing, well-established Cook Children's primary care offices and would love to continue seeing your children at their new locations. Please see below for the addresses and phone numbers of their respective new offices.

On January 1, 2017, Dr. Arca joined an established group of outstanding women physicians at our Cook Children's Flower Mound practice. Appointments with Dr. Arca can be made by calling the Flower Mound office.
On May 30, 2017, Dr. Harston joined a talented and dedicated group of physicians and staff members at our Cook Children's Hurst practice. Appointments for May 30 and forward can be scheduled by calling her new office in Hurst.

Both of these locations are located a short distance from the Grapevine/Colleyville office and are easily accessible.

Request medical records

Cook Children's keeps a record of each lab, x-ray, medical center, or specialty clinic visit. The privacy of this information is protected by federal and state regulations. This means your medical information is only available to the Cook Children's healthcare professionals caring for you or your child. Everyone else must get special permission (called authorization) before the information can be released.

Specialty care referrals

At Cook Children's, we provide more than 60 pediatric medical and specialty clinic offices to support your child if they require specialized care. We offer child-friendly medical and surgical technology, as well as care designed to help children and their families feel at ease and safe during a stressful time.

  • Referrals to a specialist may be made by your doctor. However, no referrals are made until your child has been seen by his or her primary care physician.
  • If you are a member of a managed care plan (HMO), a referral form is required for treatment by a specialist. Allow five to seven working days for the referral to be completed and mailed.
