Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Buhrfiend I tend to spend a lot of time with the parents. I spend a lot of time speaking with the parents. I want them to understand their child's neurologic problem - the diagnosis. And in order to do that I tend to spend a lot of time in clinic and outside of the clinic speaking to them on the telephone so that they so that they do have a really good understanding of what is going on with their child. Some of the neurologic disorders can be very devastating, and so if there's any way that you can help them - and prevent them from further neurologic deterioration - that's what's important to me. And that's what I try to do. I try to help these children so that they can have a better life - whether it's curing them, putting them into remission, or just improving their neurologic problem.
