- 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.

While Doctor Yacoub is a wonderful doctor, he lacks having any staff to help him out. He has no after hour follow up, does not return phone call, closes down the office for no reason. Will NOT return phone calls! Please Doctor Yacoub why would you continue to have an office when NOBODY can come see you? Shame on you sir! It's going on 3 wks without a return phone call! Shame on you! You had me sent to get testing but I can't come in to get the results? I hate giving you this report but people need to be aware of the lack of follow up on your end.
phone calls are not retuned. waited weeks for him to sign off on my rx refill. does not follow through! waited 3 months for my mri script. still no script for blood work, it has been 6 months- seriously. i am scheduled to see another doctor. it is ashame because he is soft spoken, very nice and respectfull. if only he could get his office together it would be the complete package.
