Dr. Shana Wallace 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.
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.

Dr. Wallace is the kind of doctor that everyone should have. She is a caring and loving woman who really does have your child's best interest right in front of everything. She listens to parents too and explains everything over and over until you truly understand it.
Dr. Wallace has treated my children for 5 years. We came to her following my oldest child's traumatic brain injury. Over the years she has helped him recover, adapt and manage TBI life. During crisis, she never failed to be there, promptly and with immediate assistance. During admissions she took extra care to ensure his safety and well being. Monitoring every change and needs that arose. Never once in a bad mood, harsh in tone or unclear in sharing diagnosis. When life gave another hit, placing a second child in her care, she once again walked with us to find options for managing conditions. Also, if your child has migraines, regardless of them being caused by an original brain injury, or just how the cards play out....she will find treatment solutions. For us it included injections rather than more lengthy hospital stays. You will not regret your choice, and it is well worth the trip to Huntersville. She has her own partnered practice now, NC Neurology Huntersville. She even has her own sleep lab in office. I would never go anywhere else. She has both conventional and unconventional approaches to treatment, whatever she feels beneficial and always includes the parent. She never makes you feel unheard, and what means so much to me...she listens to my child and allows them to speak to their own conditions. I strongly recommend her if you want positive outcomes that also help your child get through long days at school. NC Neurology 704-464-1509.
Besides being the best neurologist I've ever had; Dr. Wallace is very personable. She helped me get my 504 disability plan for school, extra time accommodations for the SAT test, and all of the doctor required medical forms for my scholarships on time! If you are looking for the best neurologist who will help you learn to live again, go no further!
From the very moment we stepped in the door at Presby Pediatric Neurology, we were treated as if we were the only family there. Every staff member there showed us such heartfelt kindness and concern. Our wait was not long at all, and we were taken back within minutes. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Wallace! She did a very thorough history and physical on my son, and then she did a very thorough exam. She treated my son in every aspect of his care and she never talked "over" him to me. She included him in everything, and explained all that was happening to him so that he could understand. Not every pediatric doctor does that. My son absolutely loves Dr. Wallace as well. We had tests scheduled in a timely fashion, got results back, and it wasn't hard at all to get the results from the office (like it is now in so many places). I would recommend Dr. Wallace and this practice to anyone!
