Specialties

Dr. Timothy Armstrong has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    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.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Forever grateful for my life

I was an emergency patient of Dr Armstrong in 1996. Having severe meningitis of the worst kind, Dr. Armstrong and his team accurately diagnosed and successfully treated me. The extensive aftercare I received (18 mos) was carefully monitored by Dr. Armstrong every step of he way. He was patient with me and my family, answered all of our questions and was genuinely happy with my successful recovery.God blesses us with people in our lives when we need it most and I'm grateful to God for blessing Dr.Armstrong with the talents he has and the

I trust this man completely

Dr Armstrong listens to me and is extremely thorough. I have yet to have a diagnosis, but he has left no stone unturned. I have lost my Kaiser coverage and will miss him terribly.

Five Stars

I have some type of muscular/neurological trouble for three years without diagnosis or even hope. Dr Armstrong was the first dr i've seen in a long time who actually sat down and listened to me & all of my symptoms. He ordered some additional tests for me and actually gave me some hope that I might find out what is wrong. I felt soooo happy when i left his office. thanks!!!!
