Center for Neurologic Diseases

At the Capital Institute for Neuroscience's Center for Neurologic Diseases, fellowship-trained neurologists diagnose and treat the full range of neurologic disorders. Included among the conditions our neurologists treat are cerebrovascular diseases including stroke and transient ischemic attacks; Alzheimer’s; vestibular disorders; movement disorders including Parkinson’s disease, dystonia and spasticity; neuromuscular disorders such as myasthenia gravis and muscular dystrophy; peripheral nerve disorders including neuropathy, carpal tunnel, Guillain-Barré syndrome; migraines and headaches; seizures; and infections of the central nervous system.

As part of the Center for Neurologic Diseases, the Institute offers a comprehensive Headache Center and also includes our movement disorder and epilepsy programs.

We also offer a pediatric neurology program led by a board certified neurologist, fellowship trained in pediatric neurology. Our pediatric program provides a comprehensive range of services including skin and muscle biopsy and genetic testing for children with developmental delays, autism and genetic disorders, as well as testing and treatment for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Our neurologists include Dr. Mitra Assadi and Dr. Chirag Shukla. This team includes physicians who are board certified in multiple specialties including neurology, vascular neurology, electrodiagnostic medicine and clinical neurophysiology, as well as one of only a select number of neurologists in the country board certified in headache medicine. 

Appointments can be scheduled with our neurologists by calling 609-537-7300. If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of stroke or other medical emergency you should call 911 immediately.
