Neurological Conditions

Having a neurological condition can make life significantly challenging.

Neurodegenerative disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson's Disease (PD) can be potentially devastating conditions, and we see these regularly in our practice. Any person presenting with signs or symptoms of a neurodegenerative disorder needs to be evaluated by a neurologist and have appropriate testing to ensure an accurate diagnosis.
