Neurology is a branch of medicine that focuses on the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. This includes the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles.

Neurology encompasses a very wide set of disease states.  Our team provides cutting edge, compassionate care, diagnosis and treatment for all of these disorders.

Common reasons why patients may seek care from a neurologist include:

  • Weakness
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Stroke
  • Seizure/epilepsy
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Dizziness and vertigo
  • Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders such as Huntington’s Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Neuropathy (nerve disease)
  • Radiculopathy (pinched nerves)
  • Dementia
  • Essential Tremor
  • Memory loss
  • Myopathy (muscle disease)
