Children's Neurology Center






Dedicated to Your Child's Neurological Health

Advocare Pediatric Neurology Associates is a specialty practice dedicated to the successful diagnosis and treatment of neurological and developmental disorders in children. Our advanced medical staff includes three board certified physicians with more than 40 years of combined experience in pediatric neurology, plus specially trained nurses, EEG technologists, and medical assistants

We serve Northern New Jersey with offices in Morristown, Sparta, and Summit and use state-of-the-art testing and treatment techniques to evaluate childhood language, learning, and attention deficit disorders; developmental disorders such as autism; headaches; and other problems, including childhood seizure disorders, tics, and Tourette's syndrome. Our pediatric neurologists work closely with many of the pediatricians and family physicians in the region.

For your convenience, we offer EEG, 24-hour EEG, long-term monitoring (video EEG), and electrodiagnosis (EMG) of neuromuscular disorders. By providing this comprehensive scope of services in one location, children can develop comfortable relationships with the same doctors and technicians, and parents can spend less time coordinating appointments and visits. We also participate in most managed care programs.
