Dr. Thomas Rapacki, MD
Dr. Rapacki did my daughters neck surgery. We were concerned at first. His bedside manner wasn't great. He was very matter of fact and covered all of the possibilities with us. She left his office in tears.... BUT... I would rather have an awesome surgeon than one that has great bed side manner any day. Dr. Rapacki and his staff have taken excellent care of my daughter and I would recommend him to EVERYONE!!! After it was all over and she was ok and healing great, we did see another side to him. I can appreciate what people say about his personality. I really can but he is VERY skilled and wonderful Dr. I also have to give a shout out to Ingrid, his nurse practitioner. She is kind and sweet and listens to you. She never rushes you. He has the skills but she relates on a personal level. They balance each other out.

Broken Arrow clinic. Made an appt online and got in on time. After vitals were taken, nurse came in to tell us that the doctor would be running late due to a procedure on another patient. I appreciated that. Doctor explained everything in detail and spoke to my teenage son who was the patient. Follow up nurse also spoke to my son about his care. Would have given a 5 star but for the wait in the room.

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.
