Neurologist (Brain & Nerve Doctor)?
A neurologist is a doctor who specializes in treating diseases of the nervous system. The nervous system comprises the central and peripheral nervous system. This complex system involves the spinal cord and the brain. Illnesses, disorders, and injuries that involve the nervous system frequently require a neurologist’s treatment. In addition to graduating from medical school and completing an internship, neurologists complete three years’ training in a neurology residency program. Neurologists treat neurological conditions, or problems with the nervous system. Symptoms that commonly require a neurologist include: • coordination problems • muscle weakness • a decrease in sensation People who are having problems with their senses, such as touch, vision, or smell, may also need to see a neurologist. Problems with senses are sometimes caused by nervous system disorders.
