A child gets a severe head injury playing sports. A senior struggles to find a familiar word or remember a recent event. Someone else suddenly experiences a seizure. What is the common thread of these medical problems? Each may require the expertise of a neurologist. Our highly trained Neurologist specializes in diagnosing and treating disorders of the nervous system and the blood vessels related to it.

Brain Scan

The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord and nerves that branch out from the spinal cord to all parts of the body. It plays a role in nearly every aspect of our health and well-being. And it guides everyday activities like waking up and walking, automatic activities like breathing, and complex ones like learning.
