Are you in need of a Neurologist?
A neurologist is a doctor who is trained to diagnose and treat diseases related to the spinal cord, the brain, and nerves. These doctors are experts in understanding the functions and conditions that affect your nerves and nervous system. Neurologists conduct many different tests targeted at coordination and balance, muscle strength, mental health, vision, hearing and speech, and sensation to help detect potential neurological problems. The most common disorders which are diagnosed and treated by neurologists include Alzheimer’s, ALS, brain injuries, concussions, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, and strokes.
