When to See a Neurologist?
A neurologist has specialized training in diagnosing, treating and managing disorders of the brain and nervous system. Neurologists may recommend surgery but they do not perform surgery. Your primary care physician will refer you to a neurologist for a neurological consultation and examination to diagnose and treat neurological disorders or conditions including:
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, also called Lou Gehrig's disease)
- Alzheimer's disease
- Brain injuries
- Brain tumors
- Dizziness and balance
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Parkinson's disease
Some neurologists have even further specialty training in treating one area such as stroke, epilepsy, neuromuscular disease, movement disorders or pediatrics. At Brookwood Baptist Health, you’ll find a team of neurology experts who work hand-in-hand with your primary care physician to provide an accurate diagnosis and begin the best treatment plan for you.
