- Child Neurology
Pediatric neurologists diagnose neurological conditions in children as young as newborn, all the way up to adolescence. They can recommend treatment for sleep disorders, head injuries and headaches, but they also specialize in issues such as epilepsy, seizures and brain tumors.
Their expertise in childhood development and the nervous system make them an excellent resource for parents of children with autism, cerebral palsy, mental development issues or learning disabilities. You can consult with a pediatric neurologist before, during and after diagnosis depending on your child's specific condition and needs.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Every time I take my son there we have to wait for him to arrive! He is usually anywhere from 1-2 hours late. Then when you do get to see him, he will say hi to my son and then me and shake my hand. Never talks another word to my son. Then he is very rushy and interrupts you while your trying to talk. Doesn't listen then get agitated when he makes a mistake and blames it on me. Insisting I told him the wrong thing. He stopped threw his pen on the counter and accused me of having an attitude and stated I didn't travel 2 hours to put up with ur attitude. I responded by I am answering ur questions and u are the one yelling at me. All of this happened in front of my child. I will be looking into another doctor for my child! Dr. Leigdo is very rude and inconsiderate of your time! Would not recommend!!!!!!
Was really hoping that Dr. Legido would exercise this Expertise & knowledge that has been boasted about. I unfortunately saw none. We've always waiting at LEAST one hour JUST to have vitals checked and then crammed into a stuffy back room. After being seen by either an intern or one of his colleagues, Dr. Legido would hastily pop in with an "Alright let's get this over with" attitude and literally it'd be over in about 6 minutes. Sent home once again with a new RX and "plan". I've never received a follow-up call, email, letter, nada! I'm very disappointed to say the least. Moving forward....
One of the most agresive doctors you will meet. If you want your child on medicine and at high doses for long periods of time with him only guessing what this will do, go to him. If you want a doctor who will not listen to your concerns or to your educated questions, go to him.If you ask him why are we doing this and his response is I know what I am doing you do not, go to him.
