Neurology

Neurology is a branch of medicine that focuses on diagnosing conditions and disorders associated with the nervous system. Neurologists may be involved in clinical research, clinical trials, and basic or translational research. While neurology is a non-surgical specialty, its corresponding surgical specialty is neurosurgery.

Neurologists see patient's that have been referred to them by another physician. Consult your primary care physician to see if this step is recommended for you.

Specialties

The following symptoms could indicate the need for neurological consultation: Chronic pain, dizziness, numbness or tingling, weakness, tremors, stiffness, drastic lack of coordination, or sudden vision problems.

Tests & Procedures

A neurologist will usually begin their evaluation of a patient by examining their comprehensive medical history, followed by a physical examination of a patient's cognitive function, cranial nerves, motor strength, sensation, reflexes, coordination, and gait. These tests are simple and painless. The purpose is to assess your neurological function, including your muscle strength, how your autonomic nerves are functioning
