Advanced Neuro-Imaging

Our advanced neuroimaging capabilities include a state-of-the-art GE architect MRI, high-resolution CT scanner and a GE Caring Suite. The Caring Suite (first of its kind in the Valley) provides a soothing environment to reduce patient stress during their MRI exam. Medical imaging services will be available in 2022.

Infusion Suite
We provide approved intravenous therapies for neurological disorders in our comfortable infusion suite. We provide infusion therapy and therapeutic injections for patients with neurological disorders in our comfortable infusion suite.

Advanced Neurodiagnostics
We perform electroencephalography (EEG) tests on-site to help diagnose and monitor people with epilepsy. Electromyography and nerve conduction studies help our specialists diagnose disorders of the muscles and nerves.

Vestibular Diagnostic
Our state-of-the-art vestibular testing lab helps determine the causes of dizziness and imbalance and is the only one in the region.
