  • Neurology

    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.

Rocky Road

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.

A Gem and Our Hero

Our son has refratory epilepsy. Dr. Perkins was with us during his craniotomy and VNS implant. He has worked diligently to find the correct AED's for his condition. My son was in the hospital for 22 days after his craniotomy and Dr. Perkins was there every day to assess his progress. He is a gem of a doctor and a huge asset to Dell Children's Hospital. I unconditionally recommend him.
