Welcome to Our Practice

Pediatric Neurologist in Metropolitan Atlanta

Please utilize this Web Site for Gerald Silverboard, M.D./ Atlanta Child Neurology for patients 18 and under.

Hello and Thank you for viewing my Child Neurology Web Site. This portion is dedicated to Pediatric and Adolescent Patients needing neurological care, although I also treat college age young adults and older adults. My website for my adult patients over 18, Atlanta Family Neurology/Gerald Silverboard MD, can be accessed with a tab above. I am starting my 40th year of practice in Child and Adult Neurology, and unlike other Neurologists, I do provide Neurological care of all types to Adult Patients as well as Transition of Care for Young Adults. I am board certified in both Adult and Child Neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I am Board Certified by The American Board of Pediatrics as well. I have authored articles and book Chapters in Pediatric and Adult Neurological literature. I was Chief Resident of Pediatrics at Egleston during my training.

I have 24/7 backup call for both my Child and Adult practices. When necessary, I admit patients to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Neurohospitalist Service at Scottish Rite or Egleston, or Northside Hospital / Emory St. Joseph's for Adult age patients. I am on active staff at each of these hospitals. I have a specific interest in treating all Neurological diseases of childhood including Headache, Migraine, Epilepsy, Pediatric Stroke, Fainting, Concussion, Developmental Delay and PDD, and Movement Disorders including Tics. I also evaluate patients in tandem with Psychologists or Neuropsychologists for Academic Underachievement, ADD/ADHD, and issues of Behavioral or Learning Regression. When necessary, I work with other Specialists for more complicated issues such as Epilepsy Surgery referral, Neurosurgical Intervention or Cardiac or Orthopedic or ENT/Ophthalmology complications. I do see many Older Children and Teens with Anxiety Disorders and/or Depression which may manifest as Neurological symptoms. I also work with many Adolescent Psychiatrists.

I care about my Patients and I do my best to provide Continuity of Care with Compassion. I am not averse to obtaining Second Opinions in complicated cases. Presently Patients requiring Hospitalization or Intensive Care are managed by the Pediatric Neurohospitalist Service with follow-up by me on discharge. I try to answer all Office calls and concerns in a timely manner. I have a small office staff who are truly dedicated to your wellbeing.
