East Dallas Neurological

NEUROLOGY/SLEEP MEDICINE

Amir Torabi, M.D.

Board Certified in Neurology and Sleep Medicine

Neurological diseases are common, still not well recognized and or treated. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial for a better outcome in patients with Multiple Sclerosis which may have atypical presentations, and most of the time these patients may not see any expert neurologist until several years after the disease onset. Similarly many stroke sufferers may have a much better prognosis if they are evaluated and treated within a certain time window by strong blood thinners such as intravenous/intra arterial thrombolytics. Still only around 6% of patients with acute stroke may receive such interventions because of various reasons. Stroke certified hospitals are designed to improve the quality of care in patients with stroke. I am happy to work at one of  stroke certified hospitals at DFW area, Baylor Medical Center at Garland, to provide care for stroke patients.

I believe preventive medicine is much more a cost effective way in treatment for outpatient setting, particularly in neurology. This implies that a neurologist has to have a great knowledge of internal medicine as well as neurology. I am happy that I have been able to integrate internal medicine and neurology in my practice. My outpatient practice is focused on treatment and prevention of various neurological conditions.

Sleep disorders include a broad spectrum of various disorders, affecting virtually all organs and systems but again usually forgotten by both physicians and patients. Excessive daytime sleepiness can cause a high number of motor vehicle accidents, and simple measures such as CPAP treatment could prevent those injuries if sleepiness is caused by obstructive sleep apnea.  

East Dallas Neurological Services is set to evaluate and treat various neurological diseases such as Stroke, Headaches, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscle weakness, numbness, Parkinson disease and Movement disorders, Seizures and Epilepsy, Sleep disorders and dementia. Appropriate testing such as EMG/NCS, EEG and PSG will be ordered and interpreted in selective patients. Patient with no insurance are also welcome with major discount.
