US-based Nigerian doctor, Hokehe Eko, lunches virtual clinic for children with autism

Nigerian doctor lunches virtual clinic for kids with autism

Dr. Hokehe Eko, a Nigerian physician, has launched a groundbreaking virtual clinic, Glow Pediatrics, to provide autism evaluations for children in the United States. This innovative service, available in Oklahoma, Georgia, and Maryland, caters to children aged 18 months to 10 years.

According to Black Enterprise, Eko established Glow Pediatrics to offer a holistic, patient-centered approach in pediatric integrative medicine. This approach addresses the physical, emotional, and developmental needs of children.

Eko suggested that If you suspect your child might have autism, it is typically advisable to seek an evaluation earlier rather than later,

She also stated that Even if you decide against enrolling your child in therapy, gaining an understanding of their behavior and needs can significantly help in providing the right support.

Research indicates that while autism testing is most beneficial for children aged 18 months or older, some may display subtle signs earlier, while others have more noticeable indicators. Glow Pediatrics offers virtual ADHD and autism evaluations in sessions lasting one to two hours for children within the specified age range.

Following the evaluation, Dr. Eko provides a comprehensive analysis, including diagnostic impressions and recommendations, which are discussed in a follow-up appointment. The clinic also hosts weekly Glow Health Circles, offering a supportive community and fostering accountability on patients’ health journeys.

Dr. Eko, a Board-Certified Pediatrician and Brain Health Consultant with over a decade of experience, uses a root-cause approach in treating ADHD and autism, considering both physical and environmental factors.

“My experience allows me to distinguish between neuro-typical and neuro-atypical behaviors and to identify other potential issues, such as ADHD, depression, anxiety, OCD, intellectual delays, or other medical conditions,” Eko explained on her website.

Dr. Eko holds degrees from St. George’s University School of Medicine in Grenada, the University of North Florida, and the University of South Florida in the United States.
