Neurological Consultation and Evaluation

The basic foundation of diagnosing and treating all medical conditions is a comprehensive history and examination. Thorough history taking and a full neurological exam is especially important in understanding neurological disorders.

Ambulatory Video-EEG Testing

Video Ambulatory EEG monitoring is an EEG (and simple EKG) with simultaneous time-locked video, which monitors physical and/or subjective symptoms such as shaking, fainting, twitching, dizziness, tingling, seizures or other non-specific spells.

Behavioral Medicine Program

The Behavioral Medicine Treatment Program at Orange County Neurology is a comprehensive and holistic treatment intervention integrating proven behavioral medicine techniques to treat chronic pain and neurocognitive conditions.

Neuropsychological Testing

Neuropsychological testing is a comprehensive assessment of how one's brain functions, which can provide valuable information as adjunct to medical examinations.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on examining the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

MRI/MRA Interpretation

MRI images of the brain and spinal cord are essential in the diagnosis of neurological disease.

Trigger point injections

This therapy involves pinpoint injections of nerve blocks or corticosteroids into areas of inflammation or nerve impingement that cause shooting pain such as seen in occipital neuralgia.

Botox® Therapy

Botox is a very effective method for treating various neurological disorders including, muscle spasticity from stroke, brain injury, MS, intractable headaches, tremors, excessive sweating, etc.

Electroencephalography

Using surface scalp electrodes, the electric brain waves are recorded. This test is essential in detecting abnormal brain electric activity such as seizures.

Electromyography/Nerve Conduction Study (EMG/NCS)

This test can greatly enhance nerve conduction studies by studying individual muscle groups.

Nerve Conduction Study

Many peripheral disorders of nerves can be detected by passing small amount of electric current through individual nerves and recording the signal generated.
