All of the department’s neurological clinicians are qualified to see general neurology patients. Neurologists are commonly consulted to evaluate patient complaints involving deterioration of thinking or behavior, dizziness, loss of consciousness, motor alterations (such as weakness, or tremor), sensory alterations (such tingling, or numbness), pain, or a history of brain or spinal cord injury. Once a specific diagnosis is made or if the problem is especially complex, patients may be referred to another faculty neurologist with appropriate subspecialty expertise, or other medical or surgical specialists may be consulted.
