Neurologist: The neurologist will take a thorough history regarding the reason for your visit (neurological in nature). You will then have a detailed neurological examination followed by a discussion of the problem and the next step, which may include disgnostic testing or treatment.

History and exam: We will ask what's going on. Listen to you. Ask a few questions. Examine you. Usually we have a decent idea of the top two or three possibilities in 1-2 minutes and the rest confirms this. If you have had a scan done being the actual pictures on cd.
