Welcome!

Our clinic specializes in neurology, the study of the central and peripheral nervous systems, and treats symptoms related to the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles.  Often these symptoms can get in the way of living your life; therefore, we understand how important it is that our patients get the attention, care, and treatment they need to live life to the fullest.  
Our practice’s aspiration is best described by Dr. Vladimir Royter, the founding neurologist, as “treating patients and their families with kindness, compassion, and understanding, to examine and to listen to them carefully, to correctly asses their diagnoses, and to help prevent and to treat their neurological illnesses.”  Dr. Royter and his team are committed to serving our patients through extensive research to investigate new medicines and treatments to improve care. 
At our clinic, nothing is more important than the comfort of our patients.  We value accessibility and quality care, and our team is committed to scheduling and facilitating  appointments in a timely, organized manner.  This work ethic is reflected by Dr. Royter’s 2014 Patients’ Choice Award for his incredible commitment to his patients.
With our top-of-the-line technology and highly trained staff, our clinic promises to help our patients to reach their full potential.

Procedures

ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAM (EEG)
An EEG is a test that measures and records the electrical activity of the brain. Special sensors (electrodes) are attached to the head and hooked by wires to a computer. The computer records your brain’s electrical activity on the screen as wavy lines. Certain conditions, such as seizures, can be seen by the changes in the normal pattern of the brain’s electrical activity. An EEG may be done to diagnose epilepsy and see what type of seizures are occurring, check for problems with loss of consciousness or dementia, help find out a person’s chance of recovery after certain brain injuries including traumatic, anoxic and others.
ELECTROMYOGRAHY (EMG)
Often the nerve conduction test is followed by EMG, which involves needles being placed into the muscle and you contracting that muscle. This can be uncomfortable during the test, and you may have muscle soreness after the test at the site of the needles. This test is used to diagnose nerve damage or destruction. Occasionally, the test may be used to evaluate diseases of neuromuscular junction or muscle, including myopathy, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, or myasthenia gravis.
NERVE CONDUCTION VELOCITY (NCV)
NCV is a test to see how fast electrical signals move through a nerve. Patches called surface electrodes are placed on the skin over nerves at various locations. Each patch gives off a very mild electrical impulse, which stimulates the nerve. The nerve’s resulting electrical activity is recorded by the other electrodes. The distance between electrodes and the time it takes for electrical impulses to travel between electrodes are used to determine the speed of the nerve signals.Symptoms that might prompt a health care professional to order an NCV test include numbness, tingling, and/or burning sensations. The NCV test can be used to detect true nerve disorders (such as peripheral neuropathy or mononeuritis multiplex) or conditions whereby nerves are affected by mechanical compression injury (such as carpal tunnel syndrome).
Computerized Memory Testing
We offer the Computerized Memory Testing which is highly sensitive for detecting early declines, accurately measures the most sensitive memory functions that are the first indicators of increasing risk of Alzheimer ’s disease, brain changes that affect memory often start 30 years before diagnosis, in people in their 50’s, helps the doctor monitor changes over time. The Computerized Memory Testing covered by most Medicare and private insurances, top-rated by a National Institute of Health review panel.
