Do I Need to See a Neurologist?

If you’ve been experiencing unexplained symptoms such as chronic headaches, memory loss, poor balance, or numbness and pain, it could indicate you have a problem related to your brain and/or nervous system. Seeing a neurologist for an exam is important if you’ve noticed any memory or concentration problems, muscle weakness or tremors, numbness, loss of coordination, or communication deficits.

Neurologists are physicians who specialize in treating diseases that affect the brain, spine, and nervous system, and a thorough neurological exam can help your doctor determine the cause of your symptoms.

During your neurological exam, your neurologist will conduct several evaluations. This may include cognitive testing, as well as checking your balance, sensory function, gait, language comprehension, eye control, motor strength and control, and many other skills. These detailed physical examinations are noninvasive and painless, and the exams are adapted for younger patients or other people with diminished consciousness or cognitive abilities.

Backed by a multidisciplinary team of medical experts, your neurologist can also connect you with one of our world-class neurosurgeons if surgery on your back, spine or brain becomes medically necessary.
