When You Should See a Neurologist

Generally, patients with neurological problems such as concussions, headaches, or numbness are good candidates for a neurologist’s care. Other symptoms you may notice include memory problems, muscle weakness, tremors, or difficulty communicating. These symptoms may indicate a brain or nervous system problem, which your neurologist can diagnose through several evaluations. Your physician will examine your sensory function, balance, coordination, gait, eye control, language comprehension, and other neurological skills. These noninvasive, painless tests help your doctor determine whether follow-up diagnostic testing is needed, such as a CT or MRI scan.
