Please continue reading to discover some of the conditions our neurologist can diagnose. 

What Conditions Can A Neurologist Diagnose?

The nervous system acts as the body’s command center. It controls everything you do, feel, and think. A neurologist is a specialist who diagnoses, treats, and manages the nervous system and brain disorders. Our neurologist is a highly trained clinician who understands the anatomy, function, and conditions that affect the nervous system and nerves. You may be referred to a neurologist for diagnosis of the following conditions:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  • Brain and Spinal Cord Injury
  • Epilepsy
  • Brain Tumor
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Headaches
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Stroke
  • Pinched Nerves

Our team can help identify the cause of your symptoms and guide you towards a treatment plan for common and complex neurological conditions. Our team may use instruments like reflex hammers and lights to assess the nervous system during your neurological exam. Your balance, coordination, motor skills, and mental status may also be tested. Dr. Adamo is well-versed with the latest research and treatment options for neurological conditions. Some of the tests available at Nassau Suffolk Neurology can include:

  • EEG – Electroencephalogram (EEG) tests are used to evaluate the electrical activity in the brain using small electrodes placed on the scalp. These tests help diagnose brain disorders such as epilepsy and dementia. 
  • EMG/NCV – Electromyography and nerve conduction velocity studies are tests that can evaluate muscle and nerve activity. EMG and NCV tests are used to assess symptoms of numbness, weakness, and pain. 
  • Balance Testing – Vision problems, dizziness, and hearing loss can be symptoms caused by problems with the vestibular system. This system controls balance and eye movements.
