Neurologists Treat Disorders
of the Body’s Nervous System

    A Neurologist can act as a principal care provider or consultant to another physician. To aid in the diagnoses and treatment, the Neurologist might perform a neurological exam to test functionality, including muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, coordination, memory, vision and speech. Patients with sleep disorders may require a sleep study. In addition, tests including CT scans, MRIs, electroencephalography (EEG) and electromyography/nerve conduction velocity (EMG/NCV) studies can provide further information.
