Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hinton "Neurons within the body are responsible for communication. They are special cells that send messages throughout the entire nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord. It is our job to help maintain these vital connections. One of the ways we do that is by connecting with our patients.

For over 23 years, Neurology Consultants of Dallas has served patients in North Texas. We have three outpatient locations in Dallas and Addison, and provide inpatient neurology services at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas and Medical City Dallas Hospital. We have been instrumental in developing a state-of-the-art stroke program as well as provided neurological care to countless people.

Our goal is to improve connections, both within the body and with the people we help."

I saw Dr. Hinton in 1999 and said at the time he was the best doctor I'd ever been to---so thorough and intelligent. He makes you feel as if you are his only patient and he'd spend all day answering your questions! Fast forward to 2017 and being the primary caregiver for a dad with Alzheimer's. No question when I got Dad moved to Dallas who we'd be making an appointment with---Dr. Hinton! And again, Dr. Hinton was spectacular! His compassion, caring nature, and staff are icing on the cake!
