What is a Neurologist?
Neurology is the branch of medicine that is concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system.
The physician who specializes in neurology is called a neurologist. After completing medical school, physicians specializing in adult neurology complete one year of residency in internal medicine and three years of neurology residency. Neurologists treat disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves.
As a specialist, the neurologist sees patients with a wide range of problems and may act as a patient's principal or consulting physician, while the family physician, or primary care physician, is generally in charge of a patient's total healthcare.
