Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Flatt "World-class pediatric care should not be limited to academic institutions in large metropolitan areas - it should be in your neighborhood. Dr. Flatt opened Louisiana Child Neurology in Covington, Louisiana aimed at providing neurological care to those children in the I-12 corridor and surrounding areas at an easily accessible location. 

Our clinic is dedicated to offering clinical services that exceed the standard of care by providing a patient-centered approach with a heavy focus on education and one-on-one time with the physician. We work closely with local hopsitals, imaging centers and labs to provide all of the needed testing to complete any patient care encounter. 

We are also offering telemedicine visits as part of the follow-up care process. Telemedicine visits can be completed from the comfort of your own home via your computer or smartphone. These visits are great for reviewing testing results, monitoring medication therapy or routine follow-up appointments."

I would not take my child to Dr. Flatt. In 2010, He diagnosed our 16 yr. old with a grade 2 astrocytoma. After her first surgery, she continued to have seizures.
