About

Bio

I completed my PhD at University of California, Riverside, followed by an MD at University of California, San Diego. I then did a residency in Pediatrics, and then a fellowship in Pediatric Neurology at Stanford. I currently am Head of Pediatric Neurology at Tulane University School of Medicine as well as Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Neurology, and Psychiatry. I also specialize as an expert in Child Neurology (see website). http://www.childneurologyconsulting.com/

Thank you. I did go to the er and they said it's not an infection. It took 3 months for the swelling to go down. It still gets very hot and painful. No one seems to know. I don't know what to do.
