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.

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.

We have been seeing Dr. Sotero for years and he has always put me at ease with his ability to assess very hard diagnosis and move forward with a plan. He is a wonderful doctor in my opinion and he has always made sure my son is at ease and understands exactly what is about to transpire. He is positive, upbeat and really good at putting the parents at ease also. I highly recommend him!!!
We have taken my son to see Dr. Sotero regularly for the past 3 years and are very pleased with his care. Dr. Sotero is highly knowledgable, sincere, compationate, and frankly just a nice guy and easy to talk to. He has a sense of humor and he takes the time to know my son, which makes the appointments that much easier. Especially with a sleep deprived child who has just completed a not-so-fun EEG exam.
Dr. Sotero has been always very dedicated and his staff is as good as him. I am very happy with his care. HE is very knowledgeable in his area, but won't try to push you into a decision. He understands parents are the ones to make the call. He will inform you and let you know the options available to take care of your kid. A great doctor and human being.
