- 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.

I have been trying to pay off our account for a long time. I have now come to find out that they have raised the bill several times and it is all from one hospitalization. They keep telling me it is a deductible, however the bill is >$500 and my deductible for that child is only $400.... They refuse to let her see the doctor anymore.... I love Dr. Owen, but wouldn't recommend his office because the billing department is a joke.
My son has been a patient of Dr. David Owen's for over 5 years now and not once has he failed to deliver exceptional care. Previous Neurologists had seemed as if they were simply following protocol, while Dr. Owen goes above and beyond to achieve a solution. My son suffered from generalized partial onset seizures, and while other MD's simply couldn't gain control over my son's episodes, Dr. Owen took the time to really assess his symptoms, genetics, environment, etc. and was able to monopolize the epilepsy that had so long disabled my son's abilities and overall well-being. He is kind, compassionate, and will think outside the box if necessary to regain control of whatever ailment his patients experience. Over the years, I've met other parents whose children see him as well and they all sing his praises and have stories similar to my own. If your child has any sort of neurological disorder, I am certain Dr. Owen will be able to provide a steadfast solution.... He is the kind of MD that truly is one of a kind.
