OUR PROVIDERS

Each of our physicians practices general neurology in addition to having a completed specialized fellowship. These fields include stroke/vascular, neuromuscular disease, neurophysiology, movement disorders, and epilepsy. With their varied backgrounds and specialties, there is one thing they all share: The desire to help every patient.

Our providers serve as consultants to other physicians and also provide long-term care to patients with chronic neurological disorders. We are selective with the physicians, advanced practice providers, medical assistants, and support staff that join our team. After all, when it comes to your health, you want great people working for you.

While most of our providers see patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings, some are located exclusively in our affiliated hospitals or are no longer accepting new patients. If you want more information on a specific physician that does not have a “Request An Appointment” button located next to their name, please call one of our patient navigators at 214-750-9977.
