Get to Know Me

Dr. Gian Rossi is a pediatric neurologist at Nemours Children's Specialty Care, Lakeland. He helps children and teens with a wide range of neurological issues, including headaches, migraines and seizure disorders. Dr. Rossi is a published medical journal author, with scholarly articles on topics such as epilepsy and interruptions in circadian rhythms. 

Why I Treat Children

I highly admire my father, a retired pediatric neurologist, who before his passing, allowed me to shadow him in clinic. Thereafter, in high school, I loved learning about the brain and its functioning in a psychology class. I majored in neuroscience in college and pursued a career in medicine. I enjoy working with children — they are fun, and you get to meet whole families sometimes, which is a privilege.

What I'm Passionate About

I enjoy a balance of academic pursuits including teaching, research and staying up-to-date in pediatric neurology. Anything in the whole milieu of medical practice could spark an interest in me at any time, whether it be reading up on the latest potential neurologic complications of COVID-19, sports concussion and CTE, bioethics of gene therapy, complementary and alternative medicine therapies for neurologic symptoms/disorders — those are just a few topics I have delved into and enjoy talking about with anyone who is interested. Interests in my field include: Seizures Epilepsy Spina bifida  Developmental delays  Tourette syndrome  Headaches and migraines

How I Try to Make A Difference

I try to take each individual patient I see, and get to the bottom of their disease process and this almost always involves mental, physical, and spiritual or emotional health and the complex interactions embedded there.  I am new to Lakeland, so I want to get to know our resources in town and team up with the community.
