Pediatric neurology

Our neurology program provides family-centered care for children and teenagers with diseases of the brain and nervous system. Families and primary care physicians team up with our neurologists to find the best ways to meet the particular needs of each child.

Our experienced pediatric doctors are ready to serve you and your family, right in your own community.

If a child needs further testing, we may perform an electroencephalogram (EEG), video EEG, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electromyography (EMG) or laboratory tests. We share test results and diagnoses with both parents and the referring physician, and together, we develop a plan of treatment and schedule follow-up evaluations.
