What People Say About Dr. John Gaitanis, MD
Reply
I had this guy as one of my first pediatric neurologists after I had my first seizure 17 years ago. He is definitely one of the best around. If you are in search of a pediatric neurologist to help your child’s epilepsy, I highly recommend John. He is wonderful and will work with your child to understand their condition.
