As the old saying goes, “when it comes to our health, prevention is better than cure.” Unfortunately, there are certain medical conditions, such as epilepsy and sleep disorders, that are difficult to prevent. These can affect anyone at any time, without warning. Luckily, we have Prime Medical Associates, a neurology clinic that has been providing expert care to patients for over a decade.
Based in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, Prime Medical Associates is dedicated to caring for patients with neurological conditions such as epilepsy and sleep disorders. Our comprehensive approach to healthcare, coupled with our 20,000 square-foot office with features such as a state-of-the-art sleep lab, a clinical lab for blood work, and other diagnostic services for your convenience, making them one of the top clinics in the industry.
At Prime Medical Associates, our neurologist, Dr. Rajan, performs a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose neurological disorders, including epilepsy, sleep disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, head injuries, multiple sclerosis, and vestibular disorders. He may order diagnostic tests such as electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS), electroencephalography (EEG), ambulatory EEG for 24-48 hours with video recording, evoked potential tests, and electronystagmography (ENG).
EMG and NCS are critical tests that help assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them, which is crucial for detecting neuropathy and nerve disorders like a herniated disc, ALS, or muscular dystrophy. In contrast, EEG records the electrical activity of the brain and is often used to diagnose and monitor seizures, Alzheimer’s disease, and sleep disorders. An EEG in the office provides only a 20- to 40-minute sample of brain activity, whereas an ambulatory EEG records seizure activity for an extended period (24-48 hours) while you are both awake and asleep, providing exceptional data for diagnosis and treatment.
Whether you’re struggling with seizures caused by epilepsy, or a sleep disorder that has you counting sheep all night long, we have a team of experienced medical professionals who are ready to provide the care you need. Our rigorous and personalized approach to patient care, coupled with our commitment to research and development, has made Prime Medical Associates a go-to destination for anyone looking to diagnose or treat neurological conditions.
