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.

Dr Perkins thinks he knows it all..i moved here from California and was in the process of getting albration surgery I moved before the surgery could be done. Dr. Perkins was bad mouthing the previous hospital and previous neurologist. He was making assumption about my condition. Even though they have done extensive testing and he just met me and has never done testing. He was saying the feeling I feel during my seizure were wrong. At the end of are visit we wanted a card for marijuana due to the fact I have seizures everynight and they are uncontrollable and in california I would get marijuana infused drinks...i know it's illegal in texas but if you have uncontrollable seizure with a prescription it's legal...he basically said no he would not recommend that because he said i would use it not for medical purposes... i only drink the marijuana to sleep because I have seizures every night all night and get only 3 hours of sleep..he was not opened to the idea...he was even corrected me when I told him about my diagnoses...i would NOT recommend him at all...

Dr. Perkins was mostly rude and unhelpful to our child during his hospitilizations. In fact, we feel his recommendations were unhelpful and harmful to our child's health. He did run some tests that we requested that were helpful. Even when other physician's made recommendations, he argued with them and was inaccurate in his assessments. Unfortunately, in our experience, we don't recommend him.
