About us

A Message from Dr. Bressler

Northern Neurology Specialties is an independent, boutique neurology practice delivering specialty neurology care in the communities that we serve.  We utilize one or a combination of conservative, aggressive, therapeutic and holistic approaches to medical care.

Every patient that walks through our door has a unique health story. My primary focus with patients is on the specialty of neurology, neurological diseases, diagnostic testing, investigating and diagnosing, leading to the development of an individualized treatment plan and strategy of care.

As part of your treatment plan, our thoroughness and investigation of your neurological conditions may seek the opinions of other medical and non-medical providers from different disciplines, such as neurosurgery, rheumatology, pain management, orthopedic, cardiology, physical therapy, acupuncture, neuropsychology, infectious disease and many others.

While we treat and oversee your entire neurological care,  it is very important that you have an internist or primary care physician part of your medical team. When you come to our office for diagnosis and treatment, we collaborate and consistently report our findings and progress to your internist because they play a central role in putting together and managing your entire healthcare.  So, if you do not have an internist or primary care doctor, seek one out and make them a part of your health team.

Communication and teamwork brings together patients, parents, teacher, caretaker, primary care physicians and other specialists. My staff is an integral part of your healthcare plan as I depend on them to assist in the numerous, day-to-day administrative functions of your care and well being.

Northern Neurology Specialties prides itself in being independent, serving our local communities as well as patients that come from abroad.  We also implemented a video visit or telemedicine program for qualified individuals which provides greater flexibility for our patients.

Our knowledge of difficult health issues and stressors on loved ones makes our goal of providing an ideal healthcare experience an essential part of our core principle: “providing you and your family neurology healthcare one patient at a time”.

Thank you for visiting. We look forward to participating in your care and being part of your trusted  healthcare team .
