Functional Neurology – First visit

You will go through a thorough interview and neurological exam to determine which specific neural circuits may be causing your symptoms.

Biologically, physiologically, we are not so different from each other; historically, as narratives–we are each of us unique.

The goal of the Functional Neurology consultation is to determine which parts of your nervous system are not working optimally and potentially causing your symptoms. Since information collected from your previous doctors is important in this process, you may be asked to send us copies of your medical reports as well as other documents. All of this will be reviewed prior to your visit.

During your first appointment, you will be asked questions and examined. A complete understanding of what you are going through and what is functioning abnormally in your body is crucial in discovering the source of your problem.

Then, unless additional information or tests are required, you will be given a clear explanation of your condition and we will discuss what can be done to help you feel and function better.
