Neurologist

A neurologist is a physician who has specialized training dealing with conditions and diseases related to the nervous system (Fig. 1). Conditions that may impair functions in the nervous system may impact the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, muscles, and autonomic nervous system, as well as the blood vessels that relate to these structures.
