INPATIENT & OUTPATIENT SERVICES

Testing is available every day of the week with many late afternoon and weekend appointments available.

EEG

With the help of electrodes placed on and around the head, the test measures the electrical activity in the brain.

EMG/NCV

To determine any muscular or nerve damage, an electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity test (NCV) is administered using electrodes.

EVOKED POTENTIALS

This test measures the brain’s response time to different sensory stimuli, like touch, light, or sound, is captured using electrodes.


Conditions We Treat

Our board-certified neurologists, many with fellowship training, have extensive experience with the conditions below.


  • ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE
    A type of dementia that affects the brain and nervous system, worsening over time.
  • BRAIN OR SPINAL TUMORS
    A tumor, or mass of abnormal cell growth, that forms along the spinal cord or in the brain.
  • CEREBROVASCULAR DISEASE
    Disease of the brain’s blood vessels that can cause stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA), a short-term loss of blood flow to the brain.
  • CONCUSSION
    An injury to the brain caused by a blow to the head, or by striking the head on another object. It may result in loss of consciousness or confusion, but the effects usually resolve in a few hours or days.
  • DIZZINESS
    A common symptom that may be a result of a concussion, balance disorder, vertigo, headaches, or another cause.
  • ENCEPHALITIS
    Inflammation of the brain, which can result in mental confusion and seizures.
  • EPILEPSY
    Disorder with seizures, or a burst of abnormal electrical signals over a short period of time.
  • HEADACHES & MIGRAINES
    Headaches are pain in and around the head and face caused by nerves, muscles, or blood vessels in the head and shoulder. Migraines are intense, recurrent headaches with additional symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.
  • MENINGITIS
    Inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain.
  • MOVEMENT DISORDERS
    Disorders that cause voluntary and involuntary movements to speed up or slow down. A feeling of a loss of control of the body is often noticed.
  • MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
    A slowly progressive disease of the central nervous system that damages the protective covering of nerve fibers, which leads to multiple physical problems.
  • MYELITIS
    Transverse myelitis is a neurological condition that happens when the spinal cord becomes inflamed, which can damage myelin, or the insulating material that covers your nerves.
  • NECK & BACK PAIN
    Pain in the neck or back that may be a result of overuse or strenuous activity, trauma or injury, breakdown of vertebrae, infection, tumor, obesity, and more.
  • NERVOUS SYSTEM INFECTIONS
    Infections of the nervous system including meningitis, encephalitis, myelitis, and epidural abscess.
  • NEUROPATHY
    Nerve damage that affects the ability to feel and move.
  • NEURO-TRAUMA
    Trauma to the nervous system such as a head injury or acute spinal cord injury. These require immediate clinical care.
  • PARKINSON’S DISEASE
    Caused by the loss of brain cells that make dopamine, a substance that helps with smooth and coordinated muscle movement. Parkinson’s, which slowly becomes worse over time, can also cause tremors, stiffness, slowness of movement, and problems with balance and coordination.
  • PERIPHERAL NERVE INJURIES
    Injuries to the peripheral nervous system, or network of nerves that send information from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body.
  • STROKE
    Also known as a brain attack, stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is stopped.
  • SYNCOPE
    Fainting, or brief loss of consciousness and muscle tone, when not enough blood gets to the brain.
  • TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
    Occurs with a sudden violent event that damages the brain. Common causes include motor vehicle accidents, violence, and sports.
