Specialties

Dr. Joel Herskowitz has the following 2 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.

  • 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.

OVERPRESCRIBES TO CHILDREN THIS MAN ONLY WORKS FOR THE PAYCHECK NOT THE CAUSE DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILDREN HERE.

I AM A FORMER PATIENT. I READ THE NOTES FROM HIS VISITS, AT TUFTS NEW ENGLAND MEDICAL AS I LOST WEIGHT AND HE UPPED MY DOSES OF RITALIN TO A MAX OF 120 MG AT ONE POINT IN THE 1990'S. HE IS SIMPLY IN THIS FOR THE PAY, I NEVER CHANGED A SINGLE THING IN LIFE, IF ANYTHING I BECAME WORSE, MORE OF AN ADDICTIVE PERSONALITY,, THANK THE LORD THERE WAS NO HEROIN AROUND AND I MANAGED TO DODGE THAT BULLET. HE IS NEGLIGENT BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, ITS EVIDENT IN HIS NOTES STATING HE IS UNSURE WHY A 16 YEAR OLD 5'7"" GIRL LOST 30 LBS ON 120MG'S

Five Stars

My son has ADHD and has seen many drs and neurologists, but this felt like the first time someone really took the time to listen to us and my son and really assess him. We left the office and my son said "I really liked him, can he be my regular doctor too"

Wonderful doctor

We met with Dr. Herscowitz this morning for our daughter. She is always incredibily anxious at doctor appointments, but he did really well with making her at ease. He really seems to know what he's doing in the area of tourettes and adhd, and gave us wonderful advice. Highly recommend.
