There are over 120 attending neurologists and 45 post-residency fellows representing all subspecialties of neurology. This vast size and the commensurate facilities allow for exceptional   clinical versatility and expertise. Each of the divisions has several clinicians who are nationally and internationally recognized for their accomplishments.
