what can you expect from a neurologist appointment?

Typical: Just like an internist, the doctor will take and history and perform an examination, but here, focuses on neurological systems. A preliminary diagnosis will be provided, and testing may be ordered to confirm correct diagnosis. Treatments and/or therapy will be advised based on the above conclusions. Your neurologist is your partner to restore functioning of your central and peripheral nerves.
