WHY UF Health?

Superb Patient Care

Neurology is a very diverse and intricate field of medicine. Neural tissues and the nervous system control most bodily functions from muscular to mental. The University of Florida is recognized for the quality of care in neurological diseases and attracts patients from a wide geographic area for consultation and treatment. General Neurology Clinics are staffed by experienced neurologists and provide ready access for patients with all neurological problems. Specialty clinics provide consultation and treatment by experts in their field for patients with a variety of difficult neurological conditions. Save time at your first appointment in our clinic by bringing your completed New Patient Information Form to your appointment.

General Neurology Clinic

Superb clinical neurologists are available to provide advice to your primary care physician for diagnosis and management of the full range of neurological problems including numbness, weakness, tremor, memory loss, seizures, headaches, and other symptoms that may result from a wide range of neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, migraine, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, peripheral neuropathy, myasthenia, or myopathy. Appointments are made upon referral from primary care physicians, with availability within one to three weeks. Our general neurologists are highly qualified to diagnose and treat the full spectrum of neurological disorders. If sub-specialty neurologic care is required, however, referrals can readily be made to the appropriate specialty clinic.

Diverse Speciality Clinics

Specialty clinics in Neurology are for patients who require sub-specialty expertise in diagnosis, such as unusual movement disorders, rare forms of dementia, or complex neuromuscular disorders, for patients who require treatments that are not available in our general neurology clinics or in the community, such as management of intractable epilepsy, advanced Parkinson’s Disease, and Botox treatment of dystonia, or for patients who want to be enrolled in clinical trials. Our physicians also staff general and specialty clinics at the N. FL/S. GA Veterans Administration Hospital. The care provided by experienced neurologists is sometimes supplemented, and often enhanced, by the participation of medical students and residents as part of our important mission to educate the next generation of physicians and neurologists
