________________________________________

Ronald I. Jacobson, M.D. received his B.A. degree from the University of Wisconsin and his M.D. degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. He completed a pediatric internship, residency, and neurochemistry fellowship at Yale University School of Medicine. His neurology residency and pediatric neurology fellowship were completed at the University of Minnesota Medical School and Hospital. Dr. Jacobson is Board Certified in Neurology with Special Qualification in Child Neurology as well as in Pediatrics.

After many years of pediatric neurology practice in White Plains, NY, in 2007, he was appointed Chief of Pediatric Neurology at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, New York. His interests include the broad array of childhood neurological conditions, and in particular, those so complex that multidisciplinary diagnostic or therapeutic approaches are required.

Dr. Jacobson's practice serves Northern New Jersey, New York’s Hudson Valley, and Connecticut with offices in Sleepy Hollow, Suffern, Middletown, and Poughkeepsie. He works in a multidisciplinary setting of pediatric neurosurgeons, epileptologists, pediatric neuro-psychologists, and all pediatric sub-specialists in outpatient and inpatient settings.

The practice offers EEG, 24-hour EEG, and long-term monitoring (video EEG), CT scan (computerized axial tomography), and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), neuropsychological testing, and other advanced diagnostic testing when needed such as the full range of genetic and neuro-imaging assessments.
