- 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 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.

I took my daughter to texoma nuerology for seizures. The doctor was great but the office staff/procedures has problems. They cancelled 2 appointments then it took weeks before they returned my phone calls to reschedule. They did an EEG and the light was broke. My daughter has seizures inResponce to light. I have called numberous times to discuss this with the doctor but no one ever answers the phone and after 3 weeks still hasn't returned my phone calls. I have been a nurse for 19 years and this is the worst treatment I have ever seen. I will be finding another neurologist as soon I can get her medical records from the office who never answers or returns phone calls.

Dr. Al-Rifai was very good with our severely Autistic son. He helped us understand the tests being done and what our options were. Through his diligence, we discovered our son has a genetic disorder that was never previously found by his four pediatricians in the TEN years since his diagnosis of Autism. We highly recommend Dr. Al. His staff at his Sherman office have always been professional and caring.
