Neurology services you may utilize include the following:

Cognitive dysfunction evaluations

The practice carries out mild cognitive dysfunction evaluations using a cognitive profile and tests for heavy metals. 

Nerve conduction velocity test (NCV)

NCV tests determine the speed at which your nerves transmit electrical signals. Your provider tests nerve speed by placing electrodes on your head or other areas.

Electromyography (EMG)

Electromyography tests use a thin needle to test the amount of electrical activity in a muscle.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

MRIs and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) use painless radio waves and magnetic fields to create images for diagnostic purposes. 

Comprehensive neurological cognitive assessments and screenings

Assessments at Physicians Creek Medical Center evaluate reaction time, memory, brain function, and more.


Treatments for neurological conditions include medications, medical marijuana, deep brain stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, rehabilitation, and surgery. If you need surgery, your provider refers you to a neurosurgeon.
