Pediatric Neurology Associates

Dedicated to Your Child's Neurological Health


Advocare Pediatric Neurology Associates is a specialty practice dedicated to the successful diagnosis and treatment of neurological and developmental disorders in children. Our advanced medical staff includes three board certified physicians with more than 75 years of combined experience in pediatric neurology, plus EEG technologists, and medical assistants.

We serve Northern New Jersey with offices in Morristown, Sparta, and Springfield and use state-of-the-art testing and treatment techniques to evaluate childhood language, learning, and attention deficit disorders; developmental disorders such as autism; headaches; and other problems, including childhood seizure disorders, tics, and Tourette's syndrome. Our pediatric neurologists work closely with many of the pediatricians and family physicians in the region.

For your convenience, we offer EEG, 24-hour EEG, long-term monitoring (video EEG), and electrodiagnosis (EMG) of neuromuscular disorders. By providing this comprehensive scope of services in one location, children can develop comfortable relationships with the same doctors and technicians, and parents can spend less time coordinating appointments and visits. We also participate in most managed care programs.

Patient Testimonials

My family has been under the care of the doctors at Advocare Pediatric Neurology for the past 6 years. The past 6 years have been quite the emotional rise for our family, and there is no other practice we’d ever want to take the ride with other than the doctors, nurses and staff at Advocare Pediatric Neurology. Over the course of these 6 years, we’ve experienced a febrile seizure, received a diagnosis of Benign Rolandic Epilepsy for two of our children and a diagnosis of Infantile Spasms for our youngest child. We’ve also worked closely with the team at Advocare Pediatric Neurology on attention and focusing disorders as well. The staff at Advocare Pediatric Neurology has met our expectations in EVERY way! We are beyond thankful and appreciative for their dedication to our family and can’t imagine life without them.
