Stroke is ranked as the third leading cause of death in the United States. It can happen to anyone at any time. It occurs when blood flow to an area of brain is cut off. When this happens, brain cells are deprived of oxygen and begin to die. When brain cells die during a stroke, abilities controlled by that area of the brain such as memory and muscle control are lost. How a person is affected by their stroke depends on where the stroke occurs in the brain and how much the brain is damaged. Our clinic works with patients during stroke treatment and diagnosis, as well as providing support during the recovery process.
Migraine headache is a result of specific changes within the brain. It causes severe head pain that is often accompanied by sensitivity to light, sound, or smells. Common symptoms include: eye pain, sensitivity to light or sound, nausea, vomiting, and severe pain, usually on one side of the head. Migraines can be triggered by many factors, such as: Hormonal changes, stress, strong stimuli like loud noises, and certain foods. Most people with migraines usually are able to manage their condition with a combination of medications and lifestyle changes. Some people may need prescription medications to decrease the frequency of headaches. Our clinic works with patients to diagnose migraine headaches, provide treatment options and suggest lifestyle changes that can bring relief.
Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis

Considered an autoimmune disorder, Multiple sclerosis symptoms and signs depend on where the nerves are damaged and may include: Visual changes, numbness, tingling or weakness, paralysis, dizziness, incontinence (or conversely, urinary retention), tremor, painful involuntary muscle contractions, slurred speech and fatigue. While MS has no known cause, steps can be taken to slow the spread of the disease. Our clinic offers multiple sclerosis diagnosis and treatment options.
Alzheimer’s disease is by far the most common cause for dementia in the United States. It is a slowly progressive disease of the brain that is characterized by impairment of memory and eventually by disturbances in reasoning, planning, language, and perception. The likelihood of having Alzheimer’s disease and needing Alzheimer’s treatment increases substantially after the age of 70 and may affect around 50% of persons over the age of 85. Nonetheless, Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging and is not something that inevitably happens in later life. Our clinic works with patients and their loved ones to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease and manage Alzheimer’s treatment options.
