Neurology is the most complicated field of medical science. It deals with the diseases of the brain and the spinal marrow (the central nervous system), moreover, the peripheral nervous system disorders also belong to this professional field. Its importance is highlighted with the fact that treatment of strokes is also performed by neurologists. This disease is the most frequent cause of becoming disabled.2. How does an examination take place?
It is possible to register to the examinations and treatments preliminarily at the receptions desk of our clinic personally, by phone or e-mail. At first personal visit, the patient is registered at the receptions desk and then he or she is directed to the specialist by our colleagues.
During the specialist examination the neurologist puts down the detailed history (anamnesis) of the patient including listening of the patient’s complaints, looking over his or her findings, earlier final reports and asking about present medicaments. Recording general history is followed by clearing up complaints important from neurological points of view. This is followed by the physical examination of the patient. The detailed neurological examination includes examination of the cranial nerve circle reflexes of the lower and upper limbs and possible pathological reflexes (e.g. Babinski reflex). Examination of reflexes takes place with a reflex hammer. During the examination, muscle-tone and muscular force is evaluated as well. Deviations of these values provide important information for the examiner. There are several kinds of functional tests to examine different fields of the brain, which require the active cooperation of the patient. At the end of the examination, our specialist establishes the therapy and if necessary, he or she modifies medicaments or advises further examinations when required.
Payment is done at the receptions desk after the examination, the consultation or the treatment.3. When/ With what kinds of complaints should we call upon a neurologist?
