There are many additional nervous system diseases for which neurologists provide care.

A neurologist is a physician who completes four years of specialized training in neurology, often followed by 1 or more years of further specialization in neuromuscular disease, epilepsy, stroke, or other field Medicine.

Department of Neurology physicians and staff provide clinical care to patients from an area ranging from Pennsylvania to the Canadian border, and including over 16 counties in Upstate New York.
