Women’s Neurology Center

Committed to the unique healthcare needs of women with neurological disorders

At the Women’s Neurology Center at Texas Neurology, special consideration is given to the gender differences in the medical evaluation and implementation of treatment and care.

We believe that taking care of your neurological condition requires important attention to how it affects you as a woman.

Dr. Samuel and Dr. Philip and the Women’s Neurology Center aim to build a clinical resource and referral base for patients, physicians and other allied healthcare professionals caring for woman.

Common neurologic diseases we evaluate and treat include headaches, cervical and lumbar radiculopathies, focal nerve entrapments such as carpal tunnel syndrome, seizures, and cognitive symptoms.
