Specialties

Dr. Louisa Kalsner 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.

  • Medical Genetics

    Geneticists are doctors with expertise in genetic or hereditary disorders. Many of the diseases we get are inherited, or passed on through the genes of our biological parents. These specialists study the biology behind a genetic disorder's origin, the traits that it presents in a patient and its pathway. This allows them to diagnose and treat each illness effectively.

Confused

At our first apt. she seemed caring and concerned. Our 2nd apt. was much different, and even with witness's to my sons episodes, she said he was normal. She did not listen well, and repeated statements back to me incorrectly often minimilizing the details. After reviewing symptoms with several parents of children with epilepsy we are seeking a 2nd opinion out of Vermont. I wholeheartedly agree with the comment about the "buddy buddy" doctor system here, it does not work in favor of the patient and we have had similiar experienes in other fields of expertise.

Terrible experience

I don't even want to write about why we have such a bad experience with Dr. Kalsner because my child's condition requires a neurologist and we are now aware of the "buddy buddy" doctors club that happens and HATE going back there. The down fall of only having 2 children's neurologists in Vermont and both work in the same office. All I will say is she is very nice and sweet in the beginning...and accomodating...but DOES NOT explain anything accuratly and waited a very long time before she feelt she needs to test for anything. Then doesn't want you to worry and gives you false information instead of a full explination leving you more worried and confused.Met some other parents who took their children out and went to Dartmouth for very similar reasons. Found this site in searching to see if another neurologist for kids were in vt
