As neurologists, our physicians are highly trained to treat disorders of the nervous system. This includes diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. Some of the more common problems that a neurologist will diagnose and treat are strokes, epilepsy (seizures), headaches, dementias (Alzheimer's disease), multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and various forms of pain. Neurologists may serve as consultants to other physicians as well as providing long-term care to patients with chronic neurological disorders.

Several of our physicians serve as Neurology Consultants at Rockland Psychiatric Center and at Letchworth Village Developmental Center.
