Specialties

Dr. Kristen Wesselkamper 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.

  • 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.

Decent guy but terrible staff and long wait time

We waited over 2 hours to see Dr. Wesselkamper. It was not fun trying to keep a toddler happy. He was a decent guy, listened to the issues, did a through exam, asked lots of questions. He even answered questions/concerns that weren't part of the original appointment. He made the statement at the end to contact them if we had any more questions or concerns. So other questions came up so I tried giving them a call. I received a call back from his nurse and she is a very unpleasant individual, not helpful at all, and always pushing us to go to a neurosurgeon instead of a neurologist. I have dealt with her three times via the phone now and she got her wish, I will no longer be going to Dr. Wesselkamper because of her attitude and bed side manner.
