There are hundreds of conditions that affect the brain and nervous system. Our neurologists treat both common and rare conditions with a focus on improving our patients’ health and quality of life.
Our neurologists and neurosurgeons work with a team of other specialists, including oncologists, physiatrists and pain management specialists, and state-of-the-art imaging services to provide patients with top-notch, personalized and integrated care.
Some of the common conditions we treat are stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, peripheral nerve disease, brain tumors, dementia and movement disorders.

Evaluations include electrodiagnostic testing as well as topographical brain mapping. Patients with balance, equilibrium or dizziness problems are tested with special equipment. Neuromuscular disorders such as Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis can be diagnosed with special tests as well.
