What People Say About Dr. Ralph Northam, MD

Dr. Northam practices an extremely lackadaisical approach to neurology. I would never trust him to care for my children. I am aware of several cases where he did not do appropriate testing and missed life threatening brain tumors. Not at all what you would expect from a pediatric neurologist. You would be better off seeing almost anyone else even a doctor who is not trained in neurology. He is also very condescending with parents and his availability is quite poor.

Dr. Northam was careless and care-less regarding the serious illness of my daughter- misdiagnosed, and another doctor had not taken over her case; Northam's order was to send her home - He was rude, cold, refused to engage with family and although this event was 18 years ago, the callousness and incompetence of this doctor has not diminished in this family's opinion. I thank God for another doctor kindly and carefully taking over her case and fortunately a pediatric neurologist at UVA also.
