The General Neurology Program at Boston Medical Center provides consultation for outpatients on a wide breadth of neurological diagnoses. General neurologists practice comprehensive neurology, a designation covering a wide range of conditions that affect the nervous system. They are often involved in diagnostic evaluations and ongoing management of patients who have multiple neurological conditions spanning subspecialties. Comprehensive neurologists work with subspecialty neurologists in many areas to enhance the care of their patients, including stroke, headache, dementia, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, peripheral neuropathy, movement disorders and inherited neurological conditions. Our comprehensive neurologists are also clinician-educators dedicated to training the next generation of neurologists.
