Top Pediatric Neurologist Located in Ladera Ranch

As the top pediatric neurologist in Orange County, Dr. Ying Peng MD, Ph.D. has established her private practice in Ladera Ranch. When you come in to see Dr. Peng, she will perform a comprehensive evaluation to build a full medical history of your child. This may include details of your pregnancy and the birth of your child. To get an accurate portrayal, Dr. Peng will ask questions—rather to you or your child—to build an understanding of potential symptoms, patterns, and more.

Dr. Peng will then examine your child to assess their physical condition—including their reflexes, nerves, balance, strength, motor function, as well as their overall senses. After a thorough examination, she will discuss the best way to move forward. This may include additional tests to get more information—such as an EEG (Electroencephalography) or VTM (Video-EEG Telemetry monitoring). These tests are beneficial in diagnosing certain disorders by measuring brain wave patterns. Once all the test results are in, Dr. Peng will walk you through the results and work with you to design a course of action to start treating your child.

It is always recommended to come with as much information and questions as possible to help inform Dr. Peng’s evaluation.

  • EEG (Seizure Diagnosis)
  • EMG/NCV (Neuropathy/radiculopathy/carpal tunnel syndrome)
