- 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.

Well.... l was very happy or so I thought. I have seizures and nobody knows why. He was very thorough and answered all my questions. I felt he really cared about me as a patient and my well being. I missed an appointment, I will admit to my own neglect. Memory loss and forgetfullness is a big problem.The other two times were due to hospitalization. He knew this and dismissed me from his practice. I asked the receptionist to call mercy and verify. I also asked for another chance. She did ask him, he said NO. He gave me enough medication for a month and that was that. Draw your own conclusion but to me that changed my whole opinion.
Unfortunately, Dr. Lilik is the only pediatric neurologist in the Scranton area. On the surface he comes across as a caring doctor. However, that is where his list of good qualities ends. He does not take the time to listen to patient concerns nor will he advocate on their behalf. He consistently negates issues and questions that are presented to him year after year (for example- options to limit/reduce the side effects of medication). Which to me is a very valid and important topic (enter the tap-dancing back pedaling mumbling talk). That is what he does EVERY TIME! Or the other go to option is to simply ignore the question and move on to his ever important dictation. Ultimately, he is lack luster and uncaring. It saddens me that he is the only local neurologist in the area. Currently seeking help with doctors miles away and the drive is worth every drop of gas!!!!
We spent weeks trying to contact Dr Likik's office to make an appointment for my daughter. They would either leave us on hold and never pick up, or say they would call back and never did. After a few weeks we got an appointment. We arrived at the office to find they moved it and didn't notify patients? Once we found the office, we sat for an hour and a half while they took every patient who arrived after us. A woman walked in with her child and was seen in less than 5 minutes while we'd been waiting over an hour! We walked out. It's completely ridiculous! Never again will I drive 2 hours to see this doctor. We'll find a new one.
My son broke his arm very badly, and there was some concern over injury/severance of one or more of the major nerves. Dr. Lillick and his assistant were amazing. They kept my son calm, while conducting tests, even had him laughing through this painful procedure. For any other neurological needs, I would definitely use him.
