Mercy Ruan Neurology Clinic

Who sees a neurologist?

You may need to see a neurologist if you have been examined by a physician and told that your symptoms are neurological in nature. If appropriate, test results will be forwarded for the neurologist's review. You will then schedule an appointment with the neurologist for an exam. More specific tests may be ordered as needed. Once all the tests are reviewed, you and the neurologist will plan the treatment and you will return to your primary care physician for continued care. You may need to see the neurologist periodically to be evaluated for the benefit of your treatment.

Neurologic disorders take many forms. We treat patients who have:

  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Headaches
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Movement Disorders
  • Neuromuscular Diseases
  • Neuropathy
  • Stroke

Please use the circle drive on 3rd Street, in front of the hosptial's new East Tower, and use our free valet service.
