Neurology Services in Private Clinics

Quick and easy access

Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with the central nervous system (spinal cord and brain) and the peripheral nervous system (cranial and spinal nerves). It is this same system that is responsible for the coordination of our vital functions, psychic locomotor and intellectual. In this sense, the neurologist treats a large number of pathologies and is therefore called upon to treat patients of all ages. He also deals with neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease.

Note that no medical prescription is required to make an appointment with our specialists.
