- 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.

Everything was great from the start! He answered all my questions, bedside manner with my daughter was wonderful, kind and caring, and he was on top of getting her testing started right way. The follow up with results took a while. I had to call a few times before I got a return call. Which upset me because she needed medication that had to be started stat!!
Our experience with Dr. Little was excellent. After getting the run-around from another doctor, we were able to get in to see Dr. Little in less than 2 weeks, which is outstanding for a new patient at a pediatric neurologist. We got in to see the doctor before I had even filled out the paper, so it was really fast. One person on his staff was very polite, and one was a little off, but it was fine. When Dr. Little came in, at first I wasn't sure he was listening to me. He's very quiet and has a subdued manner. But soon I realized that he was listening carefully and considering our options, which I greatly prefer to someone who just chit chats. He was professional and explained things clearly to both my son and me. He asked several times if we had any other questions, and very willingly explained everything i asked about. I was so relieved to find someone who both listened to me and believed what I was saying. At the end of the visit, he gave me his card so I could contact him if we needed prescription alterations or had questions. Overall I was very impressed with Dr. Little. He is an interesting person, and I can see why some people don't mesh with him, but he doesn't have to be your best friend--he just has to be a great doctor. And I think he is--My son has felt better over the last month than he has in years. Thank you, Dr. Little!!
Dr Little was condenscending, disrespectful, and completely misled patient. Treatment options were limited and ineffective. Doctor did not follow-up with patient was promised. Upon receivng patient records, doctor notes were contradictory to what actually happened during office visits. Upon reviewing doctor notes with doctor, further conradictions were made rendering obsolvement of trust and confidences in doctor ability.
Dr. Little is an exceptional doctor, with great bedside manner, knowledge and sensitivity. However, his support staff and telephone answering system represent varying degrees of complete and utter madness. I am not a fan of the support system for Dr. Little.
