Neurology

Alert: Some CHA centers and services will be closed on Presidents' Day (Monday, February 18th). Please see this schedule for details.

Neurologists are experts in the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. We help you understand your health by doing a history and performing tests for vision, strength, coordination, reflexes and touch. Sometimes we do tests like CT, MRI, EEG, sleep studies or EMG to diagnose or rule out a specific health condition. Most tests are painless, but we will explain them to you in more detail if needed.
