Welcome to Richard Alexan M.D.
Our office specializes in the practice of neurology. Neurology is the medical specialty encompassing diseases, conditions, and infections of the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves.
Neurologists diagnose disorders of the nervous systems. This includes sudden problems with sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. These are often linked to neurological disorders. Neurologists also investigate sudden difficulty with normal motor functions. Problems with balance, reflexes and muscle strength are often neurological in origin. Neurologists also diagnose disorders of the brain such as memory loss, the inability to speak properly and difficulty with abstract thought.
When and if the time comes that you need a neurologist, shopping around for the right doctor may seem like the least of your concerns. After all, we don’t just see a neurologist on a whim. But whether you have a pinched nerve or a serious neurological disorder, finding the right neurologist for you can be vital to receiving the treatment you need.
Our staff is fully committed to professional continuity of care, tailored to the individual needs and concerns of each patient. Our goal is to provide our patients with the best possible care while utilizing the most advanced techniques, treatments and pharmaceuticals available.
