Our neurological examination involves assessing sensory skills, motor skills, and includes other capabilities.
Everyone in our office, from our receptionist to your neurologist, has one goal in mind--to help you feel better as fast as possible.

Neurology deals with the treatment of diseases affecting the nervous system. That includes the central as well as the peripheral nervous system. The spinal cord and the brain are the major organs of the nervous system. Neurology deals with not only the nerves, but also the coverings for the nerves, the blood vessels, muscles and tissues.
The nerves of our body are integral to our daily life and are often taken for granted, until something goes wrong and we aren’t able to live and work as we used to. Nerves transmit signals from the brain to the organs of our body, making us do what we do at the appropriate time. Problems with the nervous system can significantly affect our quality of life, and is something a good deal of Americans are grappling with.
EMG allows the physician to measure the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction.
Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV)
Nerve conduction velocity studies uses electrodes taped to the skin (surface electrodes) to measure speed and strength of signal traveling between two or more points on a limb or face.
An electroencephalogram is a test that measures and records the electrical activity of the brain by using electrodes (sensors) attached to your head.
