Comprehensive Neurological Evaluations
New Patient Appointment:
- new consultations and evaluations involve careful gathering of patient history, review of records and imaging, discussion with prior providers/therapists and school if needed, detailed neurological exam of the patient (please bring child to initial appointment), and development of a diagnostic plan and/or treatment plan [60 - 90 min]
After the initial consultation, if we decide together that additional clinic visits are needed for further treatment, re-evaluation, and/or medication check-ups then regular follow ups will be necessary every 4-6 months depending on individual case.
Follow up Appointments:
- involve review of test results/feedback sessions with parents
- discussion of the diagnostic impression
- developing an ongoing treatment plan based on the results/data gathered [30-45 min]
We will stay in contact over email in between clinic visits to ensure that care is seamless and that we are making appropriate progress.
Refills for medications, for example, do not need a visit monthly but rather would be done by requesting over email and would be sent electronically to your pharmacy.
Why I treat children
I was always fascinated by the human body — specifically by how the central nervous system grows and develops. Now, I really enjoy working closely with children and their families to help them better understand neurological conditions and their treatment plans. I keep up with cutting edge advances in pharmacology, research and technology so you are always getting the most up to date advice and care that is out there.
What I'm passionate about
I think it’s incredibly important — and rewarding — to work with the whole family. As a parent of two boys myself, I understand how difficult parenthood can be and how hard it is to balance work and family life. Often we have parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles and more that come to appointments, which I think is great. A large part of what I do is educating parents and explaining to the family their child's condition and the prognosis.
How I try to make a difference
I believe that the key to successful outcomes in the care of children with pediatric neurological disorders is communication with their families, responsiveness, bedside manner, and being accessible. I work closely with children and their families to develop thoughtful and unique treatment plans. The school is also a very important piece of the puzzle in terms of accommodations that can be provided to help the child and I help bridge this gap as well.

How it works
We customize every evaluation to your child's and family's needs. We review all prior records, help with school accommodations and letters, and work together as a team with your child's pediatrician, therapist(s), psychiatrist, neuropsychologist and other specialists to ensure the most comprehensive and complete plan of care is developed every time.
