Info gathering: Usually a doctor will have you fill out initial paperwork, talk to you about your history in general, as well as the history of whatever problem you're seeing him/her for, then do an exam and make some recommendations for next steps. Good luck!

History and exam: The neurologist will listen to you, ask you questions, examine you, and come up with what could be going on with you, how to figure or out and treat you.
