A neurologist is a doctor who specializes in treating and managing disorders of the brain and nervous system. Their background and medical training include an undergraduate degree, completion of a medical school, at least a one-year internship, and three years of special training.
Can neurological disorders be treated?
Yes, many disorders can be treated. To find treatment options, neurologists can perform and interpret various tests of the nervous system and brain. Each treatment can help patients with neurological disorders maintain the highest quality of life.
What is involved with a neurological exam?
During the exam, the neurologist reviews the patient’s health history while paying special attention to his or her current condition.
On average, the exam will test the vision, coordination, reflexes, and sensation of the patient. This information helps determine if the problem exists in the nervous system. But further tests may be needed to confirm a diagnosis.
