    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

One Star

Dr. Butler was not prepared for my son's visit. After waiting 2 hours he spent less than 15 minutes with us. He obviously had not reviewed his notes from our previous appointment as he started to review old test results, had to leave the room to find the new test results after my reminding him, and had not received other test results that we had scheduled the appointment to review. Then asked us to reschedule in 3 months. We are changing doctors.

He was very abrupt after about 15-20 minutes and terminated any discussion even though we had more questions to ask.
