- 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 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.

I was very nervous after reading reviews. Almost cancelled my sons appointment. I’m so glad I didn’t. I don’t think we could have been happier. She spent time explaining things to us, listened to/answered all our questions. Went over treatment options for now and possibilities for in the future. Gave us some info to read up on some things. We never felt rushed (she spent a good 1 1/2 hours with us). Dr. Meehan was very professional and polite the entire time. I would definitely take my son back to see her.

Dr Meehan does not have a good way with children - has no rapport at all. Our son (age 3) got upset during the examination and she just walked away. Disregarded parent input and brushed off questions. Was not knowledgeable about suspected disorder. Brushed off all questions and stated that because there were no developmental issues he'd grow out of it. Mother has same genetic disorder but this was disregarded. Would never go back to this doctor.

Our appointment with Dr. Meehan was one of the most horrific appointments we had within both CHOP and DuPont Children's Hospitals; in 20 years dealing with both. This so called doctor was horrible to my young child, beyond rude, would not listen to my child or me,. After all that at the end of the appointment her answer was to go home and read about migraine / cluster headaches. Is this the best CHOP can do!!!! .
