"This is the absolute worst physician I have ever seen in my entire life. She could not be less compassionate and less patient oriented. She told me that she did not have time to deal with any communication from me so I would have to make a trip to her office if I had concerns, which is quite a long drive for me. Wow. What do you say to that? I tried to discuss this with the clinic manager, but I was told that she didn't have time for patients like me. As if the word patient was synonymous with the word trash. She also failed to inform me of certain details surrounding the medicine she put me on, details that I needed to know for safety reasons. The nurse was as apathetic as well, and, when being referred to another physician, the front desk staff gave me the wrong telephone for the other physician's office. They could not care less about patient care here. Very sad for an organization that alleges that it treats people with dignity, respect and compassion. With them, it's more like disdain, repugnance, and contentiousness. "

What is Neurophysiology?

Neurophysiologists are doctors who use tests to evaluate the function of the nervous system. They are able to record the electrical transmissions of the brain, spinal cord, muscles and nerves in order to diagnose neurological diseases. A neurophysiologist may test for nerve and muscle conditions such as myasthenia gravis, demyelinating polyneuropathy, or ALS.

There are a number of tests that a neurophysiologist might use, depending on the part of the nervous system that is affected. Some of these include:
  • Nerve conduction studies, to show how well nerves are working
  • Electromyography, to show how well the muscles respond to signals from nerves
  • Electroencephalography (EEG), a test to measure brain activity (most often used to diagnose epilepsy)
  • Evoked potential studies, which measure electrical activity in the brain in response to a stimulus
  • Polysomnography, or a sleep study, which records brain activity and body functions during sleep

In addition, neurophysiologists are often called on to assist during brain or spinal cord surgery to monitor the health and function of the nervous system during the procedure.

After performing tests on the nervous system, neurophysiologists will offer their interpretation and opinion of the results to help make a diagnosis. They provide critical information to patients with serious neurological diseases.
