Ayer Neuroscience Institute General Neurology Department

If your primary care provider has recommended that you see a neurologist, a general neurologist is a great starting point in the evaluation of new or worsening neurologic symptoms.

Symptoms range widely and may include gait imbalance, tingling sensation or numbness, migraines, vision problems, tremors and memory disturbances to name a few.

At the Hartford HealthCare Ayer Neuroscience Institute, our general neurologists are able to diagnose and treat a wide spectrum of neurological disorders. If needed, they will refer you to a subspecialist, such as a specialist in headaches, movement disorders or epilepsy within the Ayer Neuroscience Institute.


What Does a General Neurologist Do?

A general neurologist is a medical doctor who is trained in diagnosing and treating diseases and conditions of your brain, spinal cord and nerves. Our general neurologists are board certified in neurology. Similar to your primary care provider, a general neurologist will serve as the coordinator for your care, either treating the condition or referring to a specialist.

When you see a general neurologist at the Ayer Neuroscience Institute, you can expect a thorough history, physical exam, analysis of data already collected, a formulation of your case (diagnosis) and a plan for further evaluation or treatment.


Diagnosing Neurological Disorders

Depend on the experts at the Ayer Neuroscience Institute for an accurate diagnosis—so you can get the most effective treatment for your condition. Your neurologist may order blood, urine or other fluid tests in order to help understand condition severity or check on medication levels along with imaging studies and genetic testing to identify inherited disorders. Learn about neurodiagnostic tests at the Ayer Neuroscience Institute.


Conditions We Treat

Most patients are referred to a general neurologist for evaluation of a new or worsening neurologic symptom. General neurologists treat numerous conditions including headache disorders, neuropathy, memory loss, seizure disorders and after effects of stroke. Learn about the conditions treated at the Ayer Neuroscience Institute.


For Patients

Before your first appointment, you will be asked to fill out questionnaires. The more accurate the information, the better we will be able to address your health needs. These forms may be accessed through your MyChart account, or here. You can request to have these forms mailed to you as well.

If you have had any relevant imaging completed outside of Hartford HealthCare, please bring the images on a CD to your first appointment. Having this information will make your visit more productive but it is not required for the visit.

It is always helpful to bring a family member or friend to your appointment to help fill in any background information and for support. We look forward to working with you.

For Referring Physicians

Most referrals are made through the Epic electronic health record (EMR). If you are not on Epic, please contact the desired location and fax all necessary information.

Please include the reason for the referral, any imaging or blood work and contact information for the patient. Please include if there is an urgent need for the patient to be seen.

Please remember that any sudden onset of symptoms should be evaluated in an emergency room.
