Visiting a Neurologist
A neurologist is a medically qualified doctor dealing with disorders of the nervous system. This includes the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease that involve the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems.
Neurologists also manage conditions that affect the coverings of the brain (the meninges), the blood supply of the nervous system and muscles (as these are controlled by the nervous system).
In addition, he assesses and manages people with a broad range of neurological symptoms and disorders including:
Parkinson’s disease and other disorders of movement
Stroke and cerebrovascular disease
Dementia and Neurodegenerative diseases
Peripheral nerve and muscle disorders
When you are visiting a neurologist, you will undertake an initial consultation. This will help Dr Paviour understand the nature of the main symptoms you experience. He will review any previous medical problems you may have had and enquire about current and past medical treatments.
Dr Paviour may enquire about any conditions that run in the family. You will have a physical examination which will focus on the functioning of the nervous system so he has a full picture so he is able to diagnose.
