Dr Raynes is a pediatric neurologist at Mount Sinai and Director of the Pediatric Neurology Clinic for over 4 years. She completed her training in 1999 at Albert EInstein/Montefiore for both pediatrics and neurology, training with some of the leaders in pediatric epilepsy including Isabelle Rapin, who was world renowned for her research in autism and speech and language disorders. During Dr Raynes’ fellowship, she co-authored a seminal paper on Joubert Syndrome, a rare disorder that affects the brainstem and cerebellum. The disorder has since received significant attention, as it is defined by genetic loci with a larger spectrum of disease than was previously known.

Dr Raynes subsequently joined Beth Israel, working with pediatric neurology subspecialists in epilepsy and movement disorders, among others. She treats a wide array of neurological disorders including epilepsy, headache disorders, congenital malformations, neurologic complications of metabolic disorders, strokes,  babies with neurologic complications in the newborn period, tic disorders, gait disorders and cerebral palsy. She also diagnoses and treats autism and related developmental disorders, ensuring that if there is a genetic component or underlying syndrome that those are explored.

The pediatric neurology division at Mount Sinai is part of a national Tuberous Sclerosis Consortium, partnering with colleagues in the related subspecialties to follow these patients collaboratively. Dr Raynes also partners with an endocrine colleague to see patients with Adrenoleukodystrophy in a combined clinic at which patients can see both providers in the same day. In addition to her clinical practice, Dr Raynes enjoys teaching both medical students and residents, finding it particularly rewarding to be able to give back to others and see the new generation of physicians gain experience in pediatric neurology.
