Remember any doctor can call himself a neurologist or a specialist in anything. Just because a doctor calls himself an orthopedic specialist does not mean that he is board certified.

You want first thing of all to make sure that this guy is board certified in neurology.

My neighbor has diabetes, takes shots, and has gout. She is being treated by a podiatrist. Who says he is a specialist in diabetes and gout. And he may be, but I surely would want at least an MD in my specialists.
