Dinesh Lulla, M.D.

Pediatric Neurology; Neurogenetics and Rare Disease

Accepting new patients

Introduction

Dr. Lulla credits his parents with his Medical Degree. “I think we all go into medicine because of our fascination with the human body. But we also think about the higher good of our patients and I think I got that from my Mom and Dad – so that’s why I went into medicine.”

“I focus on different epilepsies and am very passionate about taking care of children with Lennox Gastaut syndrome, Dravet syndrome, Doose syndrome and other epilepsies. I am also very devoted to treating children with Tourette syndrome and tic disorders. As someone who experiences motor tics myself, I deeply understand what these children go through on a physical and emotional level,” said Dr. Lulla.

Dr. Lulla is also dedicated to helping children with rare diseases. “I love working with children because they surprise me and teach me new things every single day and make me want to be a better physician. I also take a lot of pride in being a ra​re disease physician and advocate for children and families with neurogenetic conditions. I want my patients and families to know that I will treat every patient like my own child or family member and work hard to build and maintain that relationship.”​
