It is best to talk with your primary car physician about your health problems. Then he can help you decide whether you should see a neurologist. In many cases a neurologist will follow you for a short time until your course of evaluation and treatment are established. In other cases the neurologist will continue to see you for a long period of time. Often the primary care physician will decide whether to assume total responsibility for your care, or whether to continue to coordinate your care with a neurologist or other specialist.

You can call the office of a neurologist and describe your problems briefly, and the receptionist or nurse can help you decide if you need that type of appointment. Even in that case, the neurologist will want you to continue your general care under the direction of your primary care physician.
