Neurology and Sleep Clinics of Chicago, S.C. is a premier and innovative center for diagnosis, management, treatment, and prevention of both neurological diseases and sleep disorders.
We provide exceptional expertise in Clinical Neurology and treat an entire spectrum of neurological conditions and disorders—headache, low back and neck pain, dizziness, balance problems, nerve and muscle conditions, peripheral neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, tremor, seizure disorder, stroke, Alzheimer’s dementia, memory disorders, ALS, brain injury and concussion—to name a few.
We also provide clinical expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of Sleep Disorders such as sleep apnea, narcolepsy, idiopathic hypersomnia, sleep walking/talking, REM sleep behavior disorder, restless legs syndrome, shift work sleep disorder and other circadian rhythm disturbances such as jet lag, advanced and sleep phase disorders.

We provide a comprehensive clinical evaluation with the goal of optimizing quality of life for all our patients.
Our neurologists strongly believe in joint medical decision-making with their patients. We ensure that when our patients leave our clinic that they have a clear understanding of their condition, possible causes, diagnostic plan, treatment options, and preventative care. We encourage our patients to be active participants in their health care plan and perceive their neurologists as their trusted medical advisor.
We strive for personalized, compassionate, and patient-centered approach in our care, where the satisfaction of our patients are our utmost priority. We value timely communication and ease and convenience for our patients. Our goal is to provide seamless care and exceptional service to both our patients and their referring physicians, by combining cutting-edge neurological care and state-of-the-art health care technology.
