Headaches & Migraines
Chronic headaches and migraines can take a physical and mental toll on our younger patients. We provide prophylactic oral treatments in addition to CGRP injections and Botox® injections to reduce or eliminate chronic migraine headaches.
We are sensitive to children on all parts of the autism spectrum. Not only are we dedicated to promoting optimal developmental progress, we are also motivated to improve their quality of life.
ADHD is the most common neurodevelopmental disorder, affecting 3 to 5 percent of children and young adults. Our ADHD diagnosis and treatment program uses advanced computerized testing for a personalized experience.
A clear objective ADHD measure
The QbTest is an FDA-approved test that measures three core ADHD symptoms: activity, attention and impulsivity. The test results are organized into a report that compares the child’s results to children of the same age and gender who do not have ADHD. We are proud to offer this advanced diagnostic testing system as part of our personalized ADHD treatment program.
