    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.

Not my favorite

I'm sad to say that it didn't work out with this doctor. He seems to be a nice man except when questioned about new techniques or when asked to fill out necessary paperwork needed for work. I felt an exacerbation I had under his care was not handled well. He seemed to be upset when I asked questions about his recommendation for treatment. I would not recommend this doctor.

Great caring Doctor

I went to this Dr after I had been to 4 other Doctors had failed to give me a firm diagnoses and get me the proper treatment I needed. He was very caring and passionate about his work. For the first time in 1 1/2 years I finally have hope to feeling better again and leading a more normal life. This doctor took a good hour to do my exam and talk to me after to explain my condition and how he is going to treat it. He was willing to really listen to me and my concerns unlike previous doctor's, with the exception of Dr Thomas Soule, which I started out with and was wonderful but retired shortly after I started going to him. He had me on the right track and the others dropped the ball until Dr. Staunton. I am lucky to have found him. I have myasthenia gravis, a weak muscle condition. Can't say enough good about him, he sure knows his stuff.
