Our services include:
- Dermal biopsies as part of diagnostic testing for neuropathies
- Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) & Electromyography Studies (EMG)
- Botox injections for the treatment of chronic migraine headaches, spasticity and dystonia
- Routine and 72-hour ambulatory EEG’s
- Computerized neurocognitive testing to evaluate memory/cognitive problems
- Neuroimaging including CT and MRI scanning
- No-invasive vascular imaging
If you are scheduled for a Neurological Consultation, you will be asked to bring a list of current medications with you. Prior to your appointment, please let staff know if you have had any previous diagnostic studies such as CT or MRI studies, nerve conductions studies or EEGs performed within the last six months.
During your consultation, the neurologist will interview you and perform a neurological examination. The consultation will determine a course of action or whether further study is necessary.
All consultations and studies are performed by either our neurologist and/or our Nurse Practitioner A referral from a physician is required to make an appointment. Some insurance will require prior authorization.
Appointments are available Monday–Thursday.
Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) & Electromyography Studies (EMG)
Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) & Electromyography Studies (EMG) are used to test how fast impulses move along your nerves and muscles. These studies are performed with data collected and evaluated by a neurologist 2-3 days a week. Procedures are given to patients who suffer from:
- pain or loss of sensation
- neurological disease affecting nervous system
Sleep Deprived EEG
Sleep Deprived EEG records the electrical activity through the electrodes that are placed at measured intervals on the scalp while the patient is asleep.
Prior to this appointment, the patient will be asked to stay awake all night until the EEG appointment. The patient may need someone to drive them to the hospital for the test for safety reasons.
Electroencephalography (EEG) records the electrical activity through the electrodes that are placed at measured intervals on the patient’s scalp. These tests assist physicians in the diagnosis of a variety of neurological problems, such as:
- degenerative brain disease
- psychiatric symptoms & disabilities in children
