What is a head doctor called?

Answer

Most people referring to a "head doctor" are actually talking about a neurologist. A neurologist is a specialist who diagnoses and treats disorders and diseases of the brain, spinal cord, muscles and peripheral nerves, including stroke, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and dementia.

Most patients end up with a referral to a neurologist when their primary care doctor believes that an underlying neurological problem may exist, such as Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease. A referral may be given if the family doctor is looking to rule out a specific disease or condition during the diagnostic process, such as when a patient is experiencing difficulty sleeping that cannot be explained by other conditions.
