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."

HORRIBLE experience. Came in throwing up. Could not lift my head. This guy had ZERO sympathy even though my family told him I had been to ER twice, been put on two rounds of antibiotics. Once again told it was a migraine, EVEN though I know what migraines are (had them since I was 8 years old)....more
