- 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.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

When we tried to reach her, as our child had increasing seizures, she was always out playing the "court circuit", testifying in some trial or such. Staff was unprofessional about relaying urgency of our child's needs.She saw our child for months, and got so caught up in her initial diagnosis, that she had narrow focus and missed the forest for the trees. When our child was eventually diagnosed with a brain tumor, it was very advanced. Her lack of diagnostic skill, or even the basic use of a CT/MRI scan is unconscionable for someone with her education.
When my son started to have seizures, she diagnosed him with a seizure disorder and, as he became worse and worse, she kept changing his meds.I had a hard time getting ahold of her, and finally asked my pediatrician to call, as my son was continuing to deteriorate..only then did I get a call back.I finally gave up and took him to the ER at UCLA and he was found to have a huge brain tumor, stage 4 brain cancer. If only she had scanned his head..it could have been discovered before he lost most of his vision and then his hearing from the intense chemotherapy.I'm lucky he's alive..but it's no thanks to her.
Dr. Morrison is such a great doctor. She is very caring and empathetic of your child's situation. We've been seeing her since our daughter was born 2 years ago and she has always been very pleasant and re-assuring of our daughters condition even when other doctors haven't been. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a compassionate doctor and a doctor who will be straight forward with you but not crass.
