These exams typically are performed in the provider's office and start with a conversation about your symptoms, concerns, and medical history. Based on that information, your exam could include evaluations of your mobility, fine motor skills, and coordination; speech, vision, hearing, sense of smell, and sense of taste; sense of touch and ability to feel pain; and memory and other cognitive skills.
Our neurology team will develop a comprehensive treatment plan that reflects your needs and goals. Depending on your condition, the plan may involve medication, including infusion therapies; rehabilitation; pain management; nutrition support; and other services to help reduce symptoms and improve quailty of life.
Your neurologist may order lab work, imaging, and other tests to confirm or rule out a neurological disorder or other medical condition. Depending on your symptoms, you might have a CT scan or MRI, lumbar puncture to analyze your cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), electromyography (EMG) to evaluate your muscles, or electroencephalography (EEG) to monitor your brain's electrical activity. Your provider will gladly answer your questions, including what to expect during the test and why it is being ordered.
Teleneurology gives us access to board-certified neurologists for consultations on stroke care and other emergencies. Advanced video-conferencing technology enables our emergency medicine team to partner with a remote neurologist 24/7 on prompt diagnosis and care. Together, they examine the patient, review images and lab results, and decide on the best course of treatment. Teleneurology also allows up to bring a remote neurologist to the bedside for routine consults on inpatient care.
We offer a broad range of diagnostic and testing services, from state-of-the-art imaging to routine blood work and other laboratory procedures.
