Specialties

Dr. Jayne Ness has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Pediatrics

    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.

God sent

We owe so much to Dr. Ness! My daughter became ill in March. She was put in our local hospital with a possible diagnosis of MS. We were then sent to Children's Hospital in Birmingham, where we met one of the most professional, down to earth, knowledgeable, and caring doctors ever- Dr. Ness. She ran necessary tests and really took time with my daughter and time to listen to me. My daughter's intial possible diagnosis was changed, and we now have a proper diagnosis and have started treatment- all thanks to Dr. Ness.

Doctor Ness was super rude and wanted to run unnecessary test. My father is a physician and never n my life have I experienced a doctor who had no compassion and was so insensitive and condescending. It's hard enough to be diagnosis end with a disease like MS and your doctor to tell you to suck it up.
