Dr. Raza has to be one of the worst doctor's I have ever seen. I just changed Neurologists to another doctor at SSN because of his inability to keep up with records, paperwork and for the recent medical advice of (and I'm paraphrasing here) "If you think the medication I prescribed for you is too large of a dose, why haven't you cut it it down to half the dose?". My response? "Because I AM not a doctor and I tend to not mess around with my prescribed dosages unless I consult the prescribing physician first. I called back later and guess what? He never updated my new dosage in their computers. Worst of all, with his loud, booming voice; he is near impossible to understand over the phone. He also likes to talk over you without you finishing your sentences. He has misdiagnosed my condition twice and a lesser man would have taken up a malpractice suit. Which I still may, dependent on my appointment with my new Neuro and how badly he may have messed up the transition between the two. I just got a call from their records department because they were missing both of my MRI's and one of the lumbar punctures he had ordered for me. Don't make my mistake; he is not to be trusted.
Tips & Advices
Neurologists must first obtain an undergraduate pre-medical degree, and the next step in their education involves four years at medical school. Upon completing medical school, neurologists typically enter a one-year internship program, and this is followed by a three-year residency program in neurology. After this residency is completed, neurologists may receive advanced training via a fellowship program, and these typically last one to two years.
The cost of a neurological exam will depend on the service that is being provided. If  electromyography (EMG) testing is being performed, the cost could run $150-$500 per test. Other types of diagnostic tests include a nerve biopsy, a spinal tap, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The total cost for having a spinal tap administered can run $3,000-$5,000.
A wide range of options are available for the treatment of neurological disorders. The symptoms of Parkinson's disease may be relieved with Botox injections and deep-brain stimulation. Multiple sclerosis may be addressed with disease-modifying therapies that are offered in injection, intravenous, and oral forms, and emotional, cognitive, and physical therapies are often recommended to support the process. Stroke treatments include blood thinners, blood pressure control, and thrombolytic therapy to break up blood clots.
Strictly speaking, dementia is not the same as Alzheimer's disease. Dementia refers to a set of symptoms, and these include language difficulty, confusion, and memory loss. Alzheimer's disease is one cause of dementia, and it's responsible for 60 percent to 70 percent of all dementia cases. However, other illnesses can trigger dementia, as well, and these include Parkinson's disease and Lewy body disease.
The signs of a concussion may include headache, lack of coordination, memory loss, vomiting, nausea, dizziness, ringing in the ears, confusion, and severe fatigue. A concussion is typically caused by an injury that causes your head and brain to be quickly shaken back and forth. A concussion can be caused by a fall or a car accident, and it may also occur during participation in impact sports.
