He was recently interviewed on Health Watch Radio by Dr. Jacques Doueck and answered questions from parents about symptoms children may have. Concerned parents have questions about headache in their chilldren and its possible cuases and what kind of testing is done. Many might be concerned about ADHD and whether the symptoms can be a different problem other than ADHD. For example, seizures can sometimes mimic the inattention in ADHD. Dr. Hasson explained on that program how seizures are diagnosed and treated as well. Some questions addressed related to potential side effects of medications for Epilepsy, ADHD, headache, etc.
Dr. Hasson patiently answered all questions related to pediatric neurological problems in that fascinating segment on Health Watch Radio.
One of his patients commented “I wish our other doctors were like Dr. Hasson, so kind to kids, with a realistic conservative approach about what they need. He listens & weighs what parents tell him, and doesn’t just go by testing.” Dr. Hasson’s Memberships In Professional Societies Are: Child Neurology Society (CNS); American Academy of Neurology (AAN); American Epilepsy Society (AES).
