- 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.
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.

Wonderful Doctor went above and beyond to get the info that is helping my little girl. Amazing and compassionate.
Dr . Fernandez impressed me with how patient and thorough he was and is with both of my children. He is sincere, honest, compassionate, direct and trustworthy. He goes over and beyond to diagnose ad treat his patients. I am so thankful for his expertise and his patience. A true God send. My kids have seen just about every neurologist in both Tampa and St Pete and he is by far the best in my opinion. He has restored my faith in doctors.
Dr. Fernandez has always been incredibly attentive to my son(7) and I. We never feel rushed while we're at the appointment, and it's because we're simply not. He takes the time to really listen to me and my concerns and answers every question I have. His bedside manner is excellent. When you first meet him, you don't know what to expect because he's kind of stern and matter of fact in the beginning of the assessment. This really helped my son get in the right mindset to answer questions and get his attention..and then smiles and warmth followed. My son always loathes going to doctor's appointments because he says they're so boring and take too long. He jumps right in the car when he has to see Dr. Fernandez and we're always with him for close to an hour. He likes him a lot, thinks he's funny, trusts, and respects him. It took a lot of research for me to choose the right neurologist for him, and I'm so glad I chose Fernandez.
Dr. Fernandez spent an incredible amount of time with my son to get to know him so he could properly assess his problem with ADHD. He was straight forward, took the time to explain his reasoning and was very patient with my son throughout the assessment. My son was comfortable with him and liked him a lot, which is very important. I had done a lot of research on neurologists in the area before making a decision on who to go with, and I chose well.
well regarded in the medical community throughout the bay area and beyond. he has a genuine love and concern for children and listens to what is said before making a diagnosis...at our lowest emotional time with our sons health issues, he provided accurate ease and care during his diagnosis. We are all lucky to have a doctor like Dr.Raymond Fernandez to entrust our childrens health to
