Neurology consults consist of an accurate assessment of the clinical signs and symptoms of inflammatory, degenerative, metabolic, and vascular diseases of the central (brain and spinal cord) and peripheral (spinal cord nerves and roots) nervous system.

At UPMC Institute for Health Chianciano Terme neurology consults involve two different phases:

  • Medical interview. The neurologist collects information on the patient’s health status, clinical history (risk factors), family history (to detect genetic risk factors or possible hereditary diseases), and on any event that may be the cause of the neurological problem.

  • Objective Evaluation This is performed to verify the neurological issue, identify the area of the nervous system involved (motor system, cranial nerves etc.), and isolate the affected area of the brain. Exams and functional tests are then performed to evaluate the mental status, reflexes, coordination, motor system, cranial nerves, sensitivity, etc.


Based on the results, the neurologist can make a first diagnosis and identify a therapeutic plan, or prescribe additional clinical and diagnostic tests (e.g., CT, EEG, MRI). A neurology consult usually lasts around 30 minutes, although it depends a lot on the specific case and disease. No specific preparation is required.

It is important that on the day of the consult you bring with you all the clinical documentation concerning your neurological disease.
