- 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.

Dr. Lindholm referred to my son as "mentally retarded". This term is no longer used. He even gave me handouts which referred to the fact that today's terminology is "intellectually disable". He should know better, but offended my son instead. His office staff is the worst! They do not return phone calls! They are rude! Worst office staff I have ever dealt with in 30 years of raising kids!
This doctor has been my sons doctor since he was 4 months old and he is now 27, we had to leave him for a couple years and I called crying and he found out he could take him back with the kind of insurance my son had. I told Dr. Lindholm he was going to be Ryan's doctor for ever and I got my wish he is so dedicated to his patients and my son was not an easy patient to doctor but we are on the right track now. Thanks Dr. Lindholm I don't know what I would do without you. Natasha
I do appreciate the care my son receives I have to admit waiting for as long as 2 hrs past appoint time to see him is ridiculous. The staff could at least call and let you have the option of rescheduling if he is running that far behind. My son also has hyperactivity issues waiting makes these appointments excruciating!
