What is a Neurologist? What is Neurology?
A neurologist is a physician who specializes in neurology, and is trained to investigate, or diagnose and treat neurological disorders…. Neurologists examine patients who have been referred to them by other physicians in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. A neurologist will begin their interaction with a patient by taking a comprehensive medical history, and then perform a physical examination focusing on evaluating the nervous system. Components of the neurological examination include assessment of the patient's cognitive function, cranial nerves, motor strength, sensation, reflexes, coordination, and gait.
