Our experienced, board certified neurologists provide a complete spectrum of care.

What is Neurology?

Neurology is the field of medicine that treats the body’s nervous system, which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles.  When you take a breath, blink your eyes, laugh, walk, or sleep, you are engaging your entire nervous system, the delicate wiring that controls your body’s every thought and motion.

At CareMount Medical our experienced, board certified neurologists provide a complete spectrum of advanced and comprehensive care for disorders of the nervous system.  They work closely with our CareMount Medical radiologists to diagnose and treat a wide range of acute and chronic neurological conditions such as headaches, movement disorders, epilepsy and stroke.

Our neurologists are in constant contact with your primary care physician to provide you with individualized, compassionate care that is tailored to your needs. And because we’re all under one roof, you receive this exceptional neurological care conveniently and close to your home, by the physicians that you know and trust.
