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.

Unprofessional and rude

Do not go see this doctor. He is rude, incompetent, and unwilling to help. Run away if your child has autism because according to Dr. Nespeca, it is impossible for a child with autism to be able to connect or make eye contact. Shame on you Dr. It is devastating to the autism community to be so misunderstood by someone who claims to be "qualified" to make a diagnosis. Autism is not a " one size fits all " disability.
