General neurology services cover a broad specialty that encompasses conditions and disorders affecting the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Abnormalities within these organs and systems can cause a far-reaching range of symptoms, from seizures and confusion to numbness and loss of sensation.

There are many neurological conditions. Some are common, and others are extremely rare—and many of them are treatable. These disorders can affect anyone, although some people may be at a higher risk. It’s estimated that hundreds of millions of people worldwide are affected by some type of neurological condition.

  • Changes to memory
  • Confusion
  • Difficulty walking
  • Difficulty speaking/slurred speech
