Functional Neurology – Why consult us?

Our unique approach helps people improve and even recover from neurological problems.

Things that are miracles are things you don’t see very often, but if you start seeing them all the time, what was once a miracle is now just a clinical expectation.
Ted Carrick, considered the “Father of Functional Neurology”

Your nervous system is directly linked to everything you feel, everything you think, and everything you do. When it is not functioning optimally, it can have a devastating effect on your life and on the lives of all those around you.

Many of our new patients have been disappointed with other specialists they have seen. Many have lost hope and are skeptical as to how we may help them. It is typically through the encouragement of a satisfied patient or a doctor familiar with our results that they decide to consult us.

Our office treats everyone who walks through our door with the same respect and professionalism that we ourselves would want. You can rest assured that we will take the time to do a thorough exam, explain your condition fully and answer all your questions.
