computerIt could be a question why should one visit a neurologist. One of the most common symptoms to visit one is the memory disorder which is mostly investigated to rule out dementia (Alzheimer disease, vascular dementia etc) or mental disorder. Gait and movement disorders with or without tremor (eg Parkinson etc), epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, stroke are some more neurological diseases. Headaches are often (migraine, tension type etc). Some more symptoms a neurologist examines are:

  • Dizziness
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Numbness
  • Neck and back pain
  • Neuromuscular diseases etc

The way to examine is by taking the patient's history, clinical neurology examination following, and then depending on each case there could be a further investigation with haematological or radiological examinations.

Apart from the above aforementioned I have a neurophysiology lab with a ΕΕG and EMG recorder. EEG is used for the investigation of brain function in cases of epileptic or other type of spasms, fainting episodes, dementia etc


EMG is used for the study of nerves and muscles (neurography, myography) in cases of local nerve lesions eg carpal tunnel syndrome or more extended ones eg polyneuropathy or radiculopath , as well as in myopathy/neuromuscular disease eg myasthenia.

There is also a possibility of visual evoked potentials in case of blurred vision or visual disorders that have no opthalmological causes.
