Introduction


Neurologists are specialists who work with diseases and disorders affecting the brain and spinal cord as well as sometimes the peripheral nerves and muscles. Neurologists often work with conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, stroke, or epilepsy in their practice. 

They may order an MRI or do tests on patients to evaluate their reflexes, coordination, sight, sensation, mental state, and strength. Neurologists rarely perform surgery unless they have special training in neurosurgery but they may work closely with a neurosurgeon in developing treatment strategies for managing certain conditions.
