What is a neurologist?

Your nervous system is made up of your brain, spine and connecting nerves, and neurology is the treatment of conditions and disorders that affect these parts of your body. A neurologist specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and management of neurological disorders and conditions.

Your primary care doctor may refer you to a neurologist for evaluation and treatment. The following symptoms may indicate the need to see a neurologist:

  • Chronic neck or back pain
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Frequent migraines
  • Issues with movement
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Severe headaches
  • Sudden vision loss
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Weakness

Our specialists use the latest imaging technology to diagnose and treat neurological conditions, from common to rare and complex, including:
