Neurology specializes in seeing patients presenting with the following conditions: seizures, headaches/migranes (initial consultation), tics, tremors, ataxia, hypotonia, microcephaly, macrocephaly, brachial plexus injury, Tourette Syndrome or Muscular Dystropy.
Neurology does not specialize in the following conditions: ADHD/ADD, autism, behavior problems, behavioral difficulties or problems in school (suboptimal/academic school performance). Please refer these patients to Child Development or Psychiatry.
Whenever possible, Children's Hospital staff will provide initial evaluations and coordinate with primary care physicians to implement an ongoing treatment plan.
