Pediatric Neurology

If your child has problems involving the nervous system, a child neurologist has the special training and experience to treat your child. Examples of such problems are seizures, delayed speech, weakness, or headaches.

Child neurologists combine the special expertise in diagnosing and treating disorders of the nervous system (brain, spinal cord, muscles, nerves) with an understanding of medical disorders in childhood and the special needs of the child and his or her family and environment.

Listening is one key aspect in treating children with neurological difficulties. Pediatric Neurologist Samira El-Zind, M.D., takes a listening approach as she combines years of expertise in diagnosing and treating disorders of the nervous system (brain, spinal cord, muscles, nerves) with a remarkable understanding of the specific needs of the patient, his or her family and their environment.

Collaboration is another key aspect of your child’s care. Dr. El-Zind, the patient, his or her family and other clinical staff work as a team, unraveling the intricate complexities of the neurological issues. Other primary care doctors and pediatric specialists work in a collaborative spirit to care for the patient who may have more complex or serious medical issues, such as epilepsy, birth defects or mental retardation. Allow Dr. El-Zind to be part of your medical team, providing excellent care with a listening and collaborative approach for your child.
