Job Description for Physician / Doctor, Neurologist

Neurologists are physicians who are responsible for all aspects of patients' neurological care, including examination, diagnosis, and referral. They service a wide variety of patients, including those with sleep disorders, spinal cord or central nervous system injuries, genetic abnormalities, and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s or multiple sclerosis. Neurologists treat established neurological patients by prescribing drugs or treatments and other therapies such as diet and lifestyle changes. Typically, they receive referrals from non-specialist physicians or emergency room personnel to make a diagnoses and provide patient treatment for neurological issues. Often, neurologists sub-specialize into a specific area of expertise. In these cases, they will be primarily responsible only for issues related to that particular area of expertise (such as multiple sclerosis) and refer and communicate other issues back to the patient’s primary care physician for treatment.
