Neurology

The Department of Neurology at NewYork-Presbyterian/The Allen Hospital cares for patients who require inpatient care, providing neurology consultation services. Our neurologists are specially trained to help manage the often complex care of hospitalized patients on a daily basis. They communicate with the medical team, meet with family members, follow up on tests, answer nurses' questions, communicate with the patients' personal physicians, and address any treatment issues that may arise.

Our neurologists have expertise in caring for patients with the following types of neurologic disorders:

  • Seizures (epilepsy)
  • Migraines
  • Strokes
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Spine problems
  • Nerve damage that may present as numbness or weakness
  • Neurological symptoms from conditions such as diabetes and thyroid disease

To perform neurologic evaluations, the Neurology Department provides electroencephalogram (EEG) evaluation for seizures, as well as evoked potential testing to record the brain's electrical response to visual, auditory, and sensory stimuli.

The Allen Hospital is designated by the New York State Department of Health as a comprehensive Stroke Center, and received the Gold Plus Award for superior stroke care from the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association.

Patients who need neurosurgery are transferred to our colleagues at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center for further care.
