Pediatric neurologic conditions can be difficult to understand and often create complex psychosocial challenges for the child and family. I favor a collaborative partnership with the family in achieving a shared goal of maximizing their childs quality of life. This is an exciting time in neurology with all the recent advances in genetic diagnosis and targeted treatments. My specific interests are pediatric epilepsy and the multi-modal treatment of refractory epilepsy including medications, diets, devices and surgery.
