What is a neurologist?

A neurologist is a medical doctor who specialises in treatment of the nervous system. The nervous system is comprised of two major components: the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system concerns the brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system is made up of all other neural elements, such as eyes, ears, skin, and other sensory receptors.

Neurologists do not perform surgery. If a patient under the care and management of a neurologist requires surgery, they will be referred to a neurosurgeon. Neurologists treat and manage neurological condition and problems, including: muscle weakness, dizziness and problems with coordination. Additionally, neurologists address issues with senses such as vision, touch or smell.

When to see a neurologist?

If you have been experiencing any one of the following symptoms, you may require a consultation with a neurologist:

  • Headaches
  • Chronic pain
  • Dizziness
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Weakness
  • Movement problems
  • Seizures
  • Vision problems
  • Issues with memory or confusion
  • Sleep problems

Many of these symptoms are common, but if the problems are long-lasting or reoccurring, your primary care doctor may refer you to a neurologist.

How to find a good neurologist?

You can find an excellent private neurologist by browsing our hand-selected directory of neurologists. When choosing a neurologist, there are a few important aspects to consider:

  • Location – It’s beneficial to choose a neurologist who is easily accessible via car or public transport, so you can attend regular check-ups and appointments if needed.
  • Credentials – the GMC specialist register will allow you to verify the credentials of healthcare professionals. You can find out details such as their education, where they have practiced as well as other qualifications they may have.
  • Consultation – once you have found the right dermatologist for you, booking a consultation with them will help you get any queries you have answered. Initial consultations tend to be slightly higher than follow up consultations, and the neurologist will take the time to understand your medical history and perform or book in the relevant scans and tests.

Common conditions:

  • Seizure disorders, such as epilepsy
  • Stroke
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Neuromuscular disorders, such as myasthenia gravis
  • Infections of the nervous system, including encephalitis, meningitis, or brain abscesses
  • Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Lou Gehrig’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease
  • Spinal cord disorders, including inflammatory and autoimmune disorders
  • Headaches, such as cluster headaches and migraines

How to prepare for my neurology appointment?

  • Medical history – think about your medical history and provide details such as how long you’ve been experiencing your symptoms.
  • Medications – bring a list of medications you are already taking because they may affect the course of treatment your neurologist recommends and it’s important for your health specialist to be fully in-the-know.

How much does a neurologist cost?

How much your neurology appointment costs you will depend on the individual specialists rate – many initial consultations may vary from £270 – £300. This will often include a discussion of your symptoms, family history and any pre-existing medical conditions. You may then be scheduled in for further tests such as an MRI scan for example.
