My daughter was just seen by a pediatric orthopedic surgeon in charlotte, nc. She needs to get evaulated for cerebral palsy to see if she has a mild case of this . I need a reptuable pedicatric neurologist near Oceanside, Ca 92058. We have just recently moved. We have Triwest Healthcare for our military insurance. Do you have anyone you would recommend for her to see. She is now 11 years old. Thank you. Determined Parent

We have been referred to see a neurologist plus an pediatric orthopedic suregon for surgery on her legs. If surgery is not done soon, she will not be able to walk once she starts gaining more weight. She toe walks due to achilles tendons tight
HI. hang on ok
hello determined parent. I hunted around for you but could not find a good pediatric neurologist in oceanside ca.
there was one but he was foreign trained and I didn't feel comfortable with his credentials, he was trained in Mexico.
My best suggestion at this point would be to contact the American Academy of Neurology, they keep a full directory of peds neuros in the country and would be able to get you one that is board certified . the website is www.aan.com
get back to me if I can help in anyway, if you have questions, I am an adult neurologist but might be able to steer you in the right direction Dr Frank T.
