Neurology is a specialty that deals with the diseases of the nervous system. The nervous system includes not only brain and spinal cord but also peripheral nerves and muscles.
We provide care with neurologic patients who have a headache, numbness, dizziness or shakiness. By a careful neurological examination and subsequent lab tests such as Head CT, EEG, NCV/EMG or Carotid sonography, we hope that we will make a correct diagnosis and offer an appropriate treatment.
