A Basic Explanation
As you may know, our physicians are specialists. A neurologist is trained in disorders of the nervous system as it relates to the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. It is our belief that you should depend upon your personal physician for your general medical health concerns. After each appointment with us, we will send a letter to your personal physician, updating him on our findings.
A pediatric neurologist serves children from birth to approximately 16 years of age.
A physiatrist is a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation. This specialty serves all age groups and treats a wide range of problems from sore shoulders to spinal cord injuries. Physiatrists also treat acute and chronic pain as well as disorders of the muskuloskeletal system.
Our physicians may recommend surgical treatment, but do not perform the surgery themselves. If surgery is recommended, they will refer you to an appropriate surgical specialist.
