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. He continued to insist they weren't seizures, but her body's way of dealing with the trauma of being diagnosed with a brain tumor. In other words, she was faking the seizures. We sought out a second and 3rd opinion. They were indeed seizures. We took her to Duke University, they belived her. She passed away on July 11, 2016.

Very disorganized office, and never returns calls. Dr is great, but over scheduled and not enough support staff. After waiting 3 months for an appointment to get EEG results and driving from out of state for the appointment, Dr made us wait 2 hours before being seen, only to find out he never even got around to reading her EEG. Totally incompetent and a waste of our time. That is unacceptable, and we never returned again.

Under no circumstance would I use Dr. Flatt! We drove 3 1/2 hours to see him and were 25 min late due to several accidents on interstate and he refused to see us. They thought we would want to reschedule?!!! After 2 months of waiting for this appt and missing a day of work to see a doctor who Acts like this! Don't waste your time with this doctor who doesn't care??
