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.

I am a medical snob. It's true. When it comes to the welfare of my children I am only willing to take them to the very best. The first seizure my daughter had rocked my world. I quickly knew we needed a specialist and took her to the best neurologist in Atlanta. I have always been willing to travel for exceptional healthcare. You can only imagine my surprise when I repeatedly found that Dr. Asma Fischer is one of the best in the southeastern United States and she is in my back yard. It was a Godsend! That was 9 years ago and Dr. Fischer has successfully treated both Mays on and daughter through very difficult cases. I have referred so many mother who, like me, needed only the best. I give her my highest praise and endorsement. You can't do better than Dr. Fischer!
Dr. Fischer was very professional with us. I have to say that I was treated with respect and she did a wonderful job in attending to our medical needs. I found her very, very kind. It is a shame others found themselves interpreting their experiences otherwise. I would recommend her medical help to anyone. She is a very, very generous, kind, intelligent doctor. Highly recommended.
