Frequently Asked Questions
Q) Why did I have to wait so long to see the doctor?
A) We strive to get patients in to see the doctor at their appointment time. However, each patient is an individual and circumstances do sometimes require the doctor to spend extra time in consultation with the patient. We appreciate your understanding. Also, emergencies arise and sometimes computer failures cause delays. When this happens, we will try our best to keep you informed of delays. If you have waited more than 20 minutes past your appointment time, please speak with the receptionist.
Q) What is an EMG/Nerve Conduction Test?
A) An ‘EMG’ is actually two tests. The first part (nerve conduction) involves applying very low voltage electrical shocks to various nerves in the arms/legs. You may feel tingling or your hand/foot may ‘jump’. The EMG involves placing a small needle into various muscles to measure the electrical activity. There are no electrical shocks. It is important that you do not wear lotions, oils, creams, or other products on your skin as this can interfere with the ability to complete the test. An EMG/Nerve Conduction will NOT interfere with a pacemaker or implantable defibrillator (AID).
Q) What is an SSEP/VEP Study?
A) These tests measure conduction within the nervous system (spinal cord, visual pathways) and help your doctor locate disease. These tests are often performed during the workup of multiple sclerosis or in patients with spinal cord diseases.
Q) How is Botox used by a neurologist?
A) Botox, or botulinum toxin, is familiar to many patients because of its cosmetic uses (reduction of wrinkles). However, Botox has been used for many years to treat a variety of neurological diseases associated with excessive muscle activity (dystonia), stiffness following stroke or spinal cord/brain injury, stiffness due to multiple sclerosis, and tremor. In recent years, Piedmont Neurology has been using Botox to treat certain types of treatment-resistant headaches. Botox is also used to treat excessive sweating. Our doctors have decades of experience with therapeutic and cosmetic Botox.
