Specialties

Dr. Anthony Riela has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • Neurology

    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.

  • Pediatrics

    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.

Fantastic doctor

Our son has autism and Dr. Riela is one of the best doctors we have ever seen before. He is very knowledgeable but also defers to parents needs and concerns. His bedside manner may seem a little terse at first, but he has even joked about it himself and has a good sense of humor and personality as well. Does not rush. He considers medications and their side effects and prefers routes of treatment from beginning with least potential side effects. We prefer naturopathic medication initially and he has knowledge on that as well.

Wonderful doctor

Dr Riela has cared for my daughter for over ten years. I have had many other doctors tell me that Dr. Riela is THE expert on pediatric seizures, not only in the Dallas area but nationally. He is exceedingly kind and patient with my daughter who can be difficult at times, and he strives to ease our burden in caring for her in addition to seeking to control her seizures. Dr. Riela is very current on the latest medications available for treating epilepsy. When my daughter has been hospitalized, he has taken a lot of time with her and with my husband and me. He is also great about returning phone calls when I have a question or think medication needs adjusting between appointments. I highly recommend Dr. Riela.
