At Neurology & Stroke Associates, we're here to provide comprehensive acute and long-term care for all neurological illnesses. Our experienced staff of neurologists provides the most advanced treatment options, along with compassionate care patients appreciate. Our goal is that our patients not only recover, but thrive as a result of our care.
At the forefront of stroke care, our neurologists utilize the most effective methods to help patients realize a full recovery.
As award-winning members of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, our neurologists help patients to gain back mobility and muscle control.
Our team can effectively manage the life-altering symptoms of this disease, including tremors and facial paralysis, with a variety of treatments tailored to each patient's needs.
We offer a variety of treatment options for pain and numbness in the hands and feet caused by neuropathy.
Our doctors can help you explore medications and treatment options to manage the symptoms of this autoimmune muscle disorder that causes muscle fatigue and weakness.
Our treatments are customized just for you. We will help you identify what triggers the migraines to reduce the frequency and severity.
The most common memory disorders are Dementia and Alzheimer's. Our doctors can help you slow down your memory loss and keep you functioning independently.
Our doctors can help you take control of epilepsy or other seizure disorders through medication and alternative treatment options.
Cutting Edge Technology:
Neurology & Stroke Associates offers cutting edge diagnostic imaging with the area's only 3T MRI for faster scan times and more accurate diagnosis!
Confidence in Diagnosis
Specifically configured for Neuro and Stroke imaging ensuring confident diagnoses. Exclusive neurological procedures for head or spine only.
Ultra-high field strength produces some of the highest resolution images in the industry. This allows our neurologists to identify potential problems and provide more information for an accurate diagnosis.
The world's most compact ultra-high field MRI system is also one of the most patient-friendly. Its compact design makes it less intimidating.
The NeuroQuant MRI software is specifically designed to improve early detection of dementia and Alzheimer's disease by precisely measuring brain atrophy. The software compares MRI scan results with brain images of healthy patients of the same age. By comparing the size of the hippocampus of patients to those in healthy brains, our neurologists are able to get a clear picture of existing brain atrophy. Since the hippocampus in the brain typically becomes smaller over time as dementia or Alzheimer's disease progresses, the NeuroQuant software is a helpful tool in monitoring the progress of the disease and evaluating treatment options.

EMG/NCV - Electomyography & Nerve Conduction Velocity
Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). An EMG uses tiny devices called electrodes to transmit or detect electrical signals.
During a needle EMG, a needle electrode inserted directly into a muscle records the electrical activity in that muscle.
A nerve conduction study, another part of an EMG, uses electrodes taped to the skin (surface electrodes) to measure the speed and strength of signals traveling between two or more points.
EEG - Electoencephalograph - Routine & Long Term
An electroencephalogram (EEG), also called a brain wave test, is a diagnostic test which measures the electrical activity of the brain (brain waves) using highly sensitive recording equipment attached to the scalp by fine electrodes.
VNG - Videonystagmography - for Dizziness and Vertigo
Videonystagmography (VNG) is a series of tests used to determine the causes of a patient's dizziness or balance disorders. If dizziness is not caused by the vestibular portion of the inner ear, it might be caused by the brain, by medical disorders such as low blood pressure, or by psychological problems such as anxiety. It is performed by wearing hi-tech video goggles with infrared cameras while you look or lie in different positions.
Carotid ultrasound is a safe, painless procedure that uses sound waves to examine the structure and function of the carotid arteries in your neck.
TCD - Transcranial Doppler Studies
TCD is a non-invasive ultrasound method used to examine the blood circulation within the brain. During TCD, sound waves, inaudible to the human ear, are transmitted through the tissues of the skull. These sound waves reflect off blood cells moving within the blood vessels, allowing the physician to calculate their speed. The sound waves are recorded and displayed on a computer screen.
VEP - Visual Evoked Potentials for Neurological Conditions
A visual evoked potential is an evoked potential caused by a visual stimulus. Responses are recorded from electrodes that are placed on the back of your head and are observed as a reading on an EEG. This is useful with diagnosing optic neuritis.
SSEP - Somatosensory Evoked Potentials
Somatosensory Evoked Potential (SSEP) is a test showing the electrical signals of sensation going from the body to the brain. The signals show whether the nerves that connect to the spinal cord are able to send and receive sensory information like pain, temperature, and touch. When ordering electrical tests to diagnose spine problems, SSEP is combined with an EMG. This is very useful with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
Cerebrospinal Fluid Studies
Cerebrospinal fluid flow studies help diagnose and plan treatments for conditions such as Arnold Chiari Malformations, Cysts, Shunt response, and Hydrocephalus. We take images while monitoring the patient's heart cycle so we can analyze the CSF flow quantitatively as well as qualitatively. This allows us to observe the pattern of the CSF flow through the patient's brain and spinal canal and measure the volume and velocity of the cerebrospinal fluid.
VNS - Vagal Nerve Stimulation for Seizure Disorders
Vagus nerve stimulation is a technique used to treat epilepsy. It involves implanting a pacemaker-like device that generates pulses of electricity to stimulate the vagus nerve. We do not implant the device at our facility that is done by a neurosurgeon; however we can monitor it's activity and adjust the settings.
