A neurologist is a medical doctor who is highly trained to identify and treat various diseases of the nervous system such as headache, stroke, neck and back pain, dizziness, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy. After obtaining a complete neurological and medical history, the neurologist does a thorough neurological examination and then discusses the findings with the patient and family to advise whether any further diagnostic testing is necessary and/or what medical treatment is indicated

The same BOTOX that smooths facial wrinkles also prevents the muscle contractions that can trigger migraines. In 2010, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of onabotulinumtoxinA (Botox) for the treatment of chronic migraine in patients. Since then, more than 100,000 patients have been treated.
Now you can receive BOTOX for migraines at the Mid-Atlantic Epilepsy and Sleep Center.
Stroke (or “Brain Attack”)
Patients with stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) benefit from a treatment plan that is individually tailored to their needs, and that takes into account a number of factors, including the pathomechanism of the ischemic event, patient’s age, gender, co-morbidities, as well as other variables. “Brain Attack” is another way of describing a stroke. A stroke, like a heart attack, is a medical emergency that requires immediate medical care. The symptoms of stroke may include weakness, numbness or paralysis – particularly on one side of the body – sudden blurred or decreased vision, speech difficulty, dizziness, or sudden and severe headache. Acute ischemic stroke is the result of a blood clot that blocks the flow of blood to the brain. If symptoms are recognized within three hours, clot-dissolving agents, such as TPA, may be used for eligible patients to reduce disability.
The neurologists of Mid-Atlantic Epilepsy and Sleep Center have extensive experience in treating various types of headache and facial pain, including migraine, tension type headache, cluster headache, post-concussion headache, and Trigeminal Neuralgia. The majority of patients respond to medication, but a full range of surgical options is available for patients who do not respond to medicine. The optimum treatment plan for each patient will be developed on an individual basis.
