Adult patients who experience neurological symptoms such as headaches, numbness, balance issues, speech difficulties, seizures, weakness, memory issues or other neurologic symptoms receive expert care from our neurology team. Our board-certified neurologist has extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as stroke, epilepsy, movement disorders, vertigo and other neurological disorders.
- Neuromuscular Conditions - Conditions that affect peripheral nerves (nerves outside of the brain and spine), as well as muscles, can result in diabetic neuropathy, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), myasthenia gravis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and other related disorders.
- Seizures – These episodes, during which a patient may experience confusion, loss of consciousness or uncontrollable movements, have many causes, including epilepsy, stroke or a head injury. The goal of treatment is to prevent or minimize the occurrence of seizures with minimal side effects.
- Memory Health – Using their specialized knowledge of the brain, our neurology team can evaluate patients who are experiencing memory conditions. We determine whether they may be developing dementia such as Alzheimer’s Disease or another memory disorder. Then we carry out an appropriate treatment plan.
- Migraines – These life-altering headaches may be accompanied by other symptoms such as sensitivity to light or sound, nausea or vomiting. Treatment strategies include a combination of medication and lifestyle changes to help patients return to their normal day-to-day activities as soon as possible.
- Brain Injuries – Once a patient who has experienced a brain injury is discharged from the hospital, our neurology team is available to provide ongoing care. We also orchestrate rehabilitation services to help them improve their quality of life moving forward.
- Multiple Sclerosis – This disease of the central nervous system disturbs the flow of information inside the brain as well as between the brain and body. MS results in symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, numbness or tingling and difficulty walking. Most people with multiple sclerosis learn of their diagnosis between the ages of 20 and 50. This disease requires ongoing, comprehensive care that may include a combination of medications and rehabilitation strategies.
- Movement Disorders – Patients who have these progressive diseases may experience many different symptoms. Common symptoms include involuntary movements such as tremors, difficulty with movement or walking, perception changes or mood disorders. Treatment plans are developed based on each individual’s unique needs and may include a combination of medication and lifestyle modifications.
