Memphis VA Medical Center

 

Neurology Service

The Neurology Service provides a broad spectrum of services to Veterans. These services include evaluation and treatment of diseases affecting the nervous system including the brain, spine, peripheral nerves and muscles. Our physicians provide comprehensive assessments, diagnostic testing and treatment plans to ensure each patient has an optimum medical prognosis. Diagnostic testing performed by physicians and technicians include: EMG, EEG, and sleep studies. Additionally, education opportunities and community outreach are offered for Veterans diagnosed with stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy.

Telemedicine Program

The Neurology Service is using new technologies to deliver more convenient and timely care to Veterans. Instead of Veterans having to travel to Memphis for their care, they are able to be evaluated at their local VA clinic. Patients at their local clinic and the neurology provider see and talk with each other through video teleconferencing, by appointment only.

Educational Activities

The Neurology Service serves as an academic resource to medical students, residents and fellows at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Under the supervision of senior neurologists, medical students and physicians-in-training rotate through the inpatient wards, outpatient neurology clinics, and sub-specialty clinics to learn how to recognize, diagnose and treat various neurological disorders.

Where is the Neurology Service Located?

The Neurology Service is located on the 5th floor of the Bed Tower at Memphis VA Medical Center. Parking is available in the Bed Tower parking area off of Pauline. Enter the Medical Center through the Bed Tower Entrance. From there take the gold elevators to the 5th Floor. Upon exit from the elevators, patients with appointments to see providers in our neurology clinics turn RIGHT, then RIGHT again and check-in at room G500. Patients who are reporting for procedures and testing (EMG, EEG and sleep) turn LEFT off the elevators and check in at the window.
