Our general neurology group practice provides comprehensive care for a wide variety of neurological conditions. As neurologists, our physicians diagnose and treat disorders of the nervous system. This includes diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. Some common problems that a neurologist will diagnose and treat are strokes, epilepsy (seizures), headaches, dementias (Alzheimer's disease), multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and various forms of pain. Neurologists may serve as consultants to other physicians as well as provide long-term care to patients with chronic neurological disorders
