Neurology

Neurologists are experts in the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. We help you understand your health by doing a history and performing tests for vision, strength, coordination, reflexes and touch. Sometimes we do tests like CT, MRI, EEG, sleep studies or EMG to diagnose or rule out a specific health condition. Most tests are painless, but we will explain them to you in more detail if needed.
