Specialties

Dr. Paul Carney 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.

  • 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.

After going to Mayo Clinic in Rochester and Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, we saw Dr. Carney and he was the first Dr. that offered us hope for our daughter. After careful review and consideration our daughter was offered the option for surgery to remove an area that was causing seizures. Dr. Carney answered all of our questions, (and there were many) always in a kind, informative way, and explained in verbage we understood. He is a Dr. that cares about his patients and takes the time needed to make sure that the patient and the parents are in the know. Our daughter no longer has seizures and is slowly getting her life back. Dr. Carney is an expert in his field and we were fortunate to have found him.

He is all business, but very good at what he does. He diagnosed my son with a rare neurological disorder, when others failed to do so. Once he did get the treatment required, my son has made such great progress. If it were not for the incredible knowledge this doctor has, i can not imagine where we would be.

dr carney didn't really stay with me to talk about my son, a few minutes to see if he was progressing. and decided to tell me that he wasn't going to be able to do anything but maybe sit. no dr should never say that. He wasn't to sure what my son has. He never smiled, he was always so serious. But my son has progressed so much after he was off of his meds. The meds made him sleep so much. Now he is doing so much, he isn't walking and sitting on his own, but he is almost there. he is rolling over, kicking his legs, laughing, stays up all the time now etc. I love my babay boy.
