Saltzer Medical Group is pleased to provide Neurological specialty services to Canyon County and the greater Treasure Valley area. Disorders that require a medical physician specializing in the field of Neurology include nervous system disorders (central, peripheral and autonomic), including coverings, blood vessels, and muscles. Specific conditions such as: headaches, stroke, traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries, meningitis, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease may be investigated, diagnosed and managed by a Neurologist. Common diagnostic services that are referred to and performed in a neurology office include: nerve conduction studies to evaluate electrical conduction of the sensory and motor nerves (mainly for evaluation of weakness, burning, numbness or tingling of extremities), electroencephalography (EEG) to measure electrical activity by the brain, and electromyography (EMG) to detect physiological properties or electrical potential of muscles at rest and while contracting. Our Neurologist, Dr. Michael R. Djernes is a Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology with more than 20 years of experience.
