    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.

Excellent Neurologist

Dr. Rizwan Shah was very instrumental in saving my life 19 years ago. He has continued to treat me since. He's knowledgeable, caring, & a good listener. He keeps a close check on my neurological problems & answers all my questions. The only time I've had a long wait was when he was called from the hospital for an emergency situation. We were informed of this situation at the time. Staff is awesome! They have been with him for at least the past 15+ years which speaks highly of the practice.

Doctor Visit

My father had a 3pm appointment with Dr. Shah but didn't get in to see the doctor until 5pm. After waiting an hour I asked the receptionist if I could reschedule I was told the wait would be the same even if my father had the first appointment of the day or one immediately after lunch. After speaking with other patients in the office I was told this was normal that this office normally over booked. This is totally uncalled for. I will find another doctor for my father.
