Welcome to Lonestar Neurology, your dedicated ally in neurological health. 

What is neurological rehabilitation (NR)? Neurological recovery is a specialized approach at our facility. It targets a spectrum of conditions, from Parkinson’s disease to stroke. Our commitment lies in providing comprehensive diagnoses and targeted treatments. It addresses the unique challenges of neurological disorders.

Imagine it as a distinctive journey. Our skilled neurologists and healthcare experts guide it. They collaborate to tailor care plans for individual needs. In this blog, we delve into the intricacies of NR. We demystify the process. We highlight its profound impact on enhancing well-being. Join us in unraveling the mysteries of neurological care for a pathway to optimal health.

 

Understanding Neurological Rehabilitation

Car accidents leave a lasting impact, affecting both the body and mind. In this exploration, we dissect common neck injuries resulting from these incidents. We delve into the principles of neurological rehabilitation, which are pivotal in the recovery process.

  • Whiplash:

One prevalent injury is whiplash, which occurs when the head abruptly jerks backward and forward during a collision. This motion strains delicate neck structures. It manifests in pain, stiffness, and sometimes neurological symptoms.

  • Herniated Disc:

Another common injury involves the rupture of cushions between vertebrae. It leads to nerve compression. This compression, in turn, results in arm pain, tingling, or weakness.

  • Neurorehabilitation:

This unique area of expertise is focused on helping people with brain or nerve issues. It often deals with problems caused by things like car accidents. The main goal is to make their daily lives better.

  • Principles of Neurological Rehabilitation:

These principles involve a comprehensive and patient-centric approach. Recognizing the uniqueness of each individual’s journey, strategies are tailored for optimum results. At Lonestar Neurology, we prioritize this personalized approach.

  • Neurological Recovery:

The overarching goal is to optimize the healing process after injuries sustained in car accidents. This comprehensive approach includes targeted exercises, therapeutic interventions, and lifestyle adjustments. It aims to facilitate recovery and minimize long-term effects.

Just such an amazing staff that makes you feel like part of their family. I’ve been going there for over 5 years now... and each visit I get the very best care and treatments that I have ever received in the 20+ years that I’ve been dealing with severe debilitating migraines. Since i started seeing them the number of my migraines has dropped from 15-20 a month to 2-3 every 3 month. I highly recommend them …they will change your life!read more

Dr. Askari was very kind and explained everything so I could understand. The other staff were nice as well. I would... have gave 5 stars but I was a little taken aback when I checked in and had to pay 600.00 upfront. I think that should have been discussed in a appointment confirmation call or email just so I could have been prepared.read more

I was obviously stressed, needing to see a neurologist. The staff was so patient and Dr. Ansari was so kind. At one... point he told me to relax, we have time, when I was relaying my history of my condition. That helped ease my stress. I have seen 3 other neurologists and he was the only one who performed any assessment tests on my cognitive and physical skills. At one point I couldn't complete two assessments and got upset and cried. I was told, it's OK. That's why you're here. I was truly impressed, and super pleased with the whole experience!read more

Since my first post my thoughts have changed here. It's unfortunate. My doctor and PA were great, but the office staff... is horrible. They never call you back when they say they will, they misinform you, they cause you too much stress wondering what's going on, they don't keep you posted. They never answer the phone. At this point I've left four messages in the last week, and I have sent three messages. Twice from their portal and one direct email. No response. My appointment is on Monday morning at 8:30am, no confirmation on my insurance and what's going on. What the heck is going on, this is ridiculous!I've given up... the stress her office staff has put me through is just not worth it. You can do so much better, please clean house, either change out your office staff, or find a way for them to be more efficient please. You have to do something. This is not how you want to run your practice. It leaves a very bad impression on your business.read more

Had very positive appointments with Jodie and Dr. Sheth for my migraine care. Jodie was so fast with the injections and... has so much valuable info. I started to feel light headed during checkout and the staff was SO helpful—giving me a chair, water, and taking me into a private room until I felt better. Highly recommend this practice for migraine patients, they know what they’re doing!!read more

I had such a good experience with Lone Star Neurology, Brent my MRI Tech was so awesome and made sure I was very... comfortable during the appointment. He gave me ear plugs, a pillow, leg support and blanket, easiest MRI ever lol 🤣 My 72 hour EEG nurse Amanda was also so awesome. She made sure I was take care of over the 3 days and took her time with the electrodes to make sure it was comfortable for me! Paige was also a huge help in answering all my questions when it came to my test results, and letting me know her honest opinions about how I should go forth with my treatment.read more

The professionalism and want to help attitude of this office was present from the moment I contacted them. The follow... up and follow through as well as their willingness to find a way to schedule my dad was above and beyond. We visited two offices in the same day with the same experience. I am appreciative of this—we spend a lot of time with doctors and this was top notch start to finish.read more

I love going to this office. The staff is friendly and helpful. The doctor is great. I am getting the best... neurological tests and treatment I have ever had. The only reason I did not give them a 5 star rating is because it is impossible to reach a live person at the office to reschedule appointments. Every time I have tried to get through to the office it says all people are busy and I am sent to a voicemail. If they could get their phone answering fixed, I would give them a strong 5 stars.read more

Let me start by saying that I have been coming here for years. Due to my autoimmune disease, I am in this office... once every three weeks for multiple hours at a time. The office is very clean and the staff very friendly. My only complaint would be there communication via phone. They aren't the best at responding if you leave a voicemail and expect a call back. I understand that this is prob just due to the sheer number of alls they receive daily. What I can say I like the best about the office are the people. Bobby who handles my infusions is great. I never have any issues with her setting up my infusions. She is very quick to reply to messages sent via text and if she were to leave then my whole opinion of the office may change. I also enjoy people like Matt, Lauren, and Jodi. I appreciate all that they do for me and without this team I'm not sure I would be as happy as I am to visit the office as frequently as I have to. Please ensure that these folks are recognized as they are what makes my visit to this office so tolerable :).read more
