Neuro-psychiatric consultation

A neuro-psychiatrist consultation is a visit with a highly-trained specialist in the function and malfunction of the brain, mind, nervous system and muscles.

The neuro-psychiatrist will ask you to describe your problem. Because diagnosis relies so much on your personal experience of your problem, the questions that the doctor will ask may be far more detailed than questions any other doctor asks.

If you have had tests (like blood tests, X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, EEGs, or EMGs) or visits with other doctors about your problem, you should bring those records with you to your consultation. Even better, ask the office staff if the doctor would like to review the records before your appointment.
