What To Expect - Carolina Functional Neurology Center

What To Expect

We are passionate about helping people achieve optimal neurological health by looking at the patient as a whole, finding the root cause of their symptoms and treating them holistically.


All of our treatment programs are catered to the individual. Patients go through an in-depth examination to pinpoint the cause of their symptoms and then receive neurological rehabilitation to correct dysfunctions of their nervous system and bring about healing.


Our priority is to listen to you. We care about your health, the symptoms you’re experiencing and the journey you have been on. We want to help you get back to living a normal, healthy life.

Carolina Functional Neurology Center Patient

New Patient

Our new patient exam includes a bedside neurological exam and diagnostic testing. The doctor will perform the exam and then you will have diagnostic testing that consists of balance testing (computerized dynamic posturography), eye movement testing (videonystagmography) and, if needed, neuro-timing tests. Once the examination portion is completed, you will be sent to get blood work. If further laboratory tests are needed, your doctor will discuss these with you during your evaluation or at your report of findings.

Diagnostic Equipment

Orthostatic Vitals

  • We check vitals in a different way than many are used to. We assess heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation in the seated, lying, and standing positions on all of our patients. This is important to understand autonomic nervous system function. For some patients we may take it one step further and perform testing using a tilt table.

Video-oculography (VOG)

  • VOG is a non-invasive video-based method of measuring horizontal, vertical and torsional position components of the movements of both eyes. We are able to test gaze stability with and without visual fixation, saccades, pursuits, reaction times, & optokinetics This allows us to evaluate functional vision issues that you cannot pick up with the naked eye.


Computerized Posturography (CAPS)

  • A non-invasive clinical assessment used to quantify how well a person is able to control their balance and posture. In order to maintain our balance we must process information from our vestibular system, our visual world and our proprioceptive system. With CAPS we are able to challenge and test these different aspects of brain function through specialized computerized balance testing.


Interactive Metronome Assessment

  • An evidence based assessment and training tool that measures and improves neural timing. We can challenge both visual and auditory input against timing mechanisms in the brain. Peer reviewed studies continue to confirm the importance of timing and rhythm in human performance.


Lab Work

  • We believe that you cannot separate proper brain function from the rest of the body. For this reason, we run baseline lab work on all new patients because this may be a significant piece to the puzzle of your recovery. Additional lab work may be needed such as food sensitivity testing, Lyme testing, adrenal panels and immune panels. We do not do any blood draws at the clinic and will send you to a LabCorp facility of your choosing.
