Neurologists are doctors with special training in care of nervous system disorders. They assess patients with symptoms such as dizziness, confusion, memory problems, muscle weakness, coordination difficulties, and changes in sensation. Neurologists care for patients with diseases and disorders such as stroke, epilepsy/seizures, multiple sclerosis, neurodegenerative diseases such as Lou Gehrig's disease and Alzheimer's, spinal cord disorders, nervous system infections, and chronic headaches.
