URMC Neurology at Highland Hospital

The Highland Hospital Neurology Difference

  • We are a New York State designated Stroke Center.
  • Our neurologists have a great breadth of experience and deliver the highest quality, patient centered care.
  • Our specialists are backed by extensive neurodiagnostic and imaging facilities.
  • Because we're part of the University of Rochester Medical Center, we're uniquely qualified to coordinate multi-specialty teams for diseases like multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's, where multidisciplinary care is essential.
  • There's a knowledge explosion in the field of neurology today. Our faculty appointments at the University of Rochester Medical Center put us on the front lines of our specialty.
  • Most importantly, we strive to be relationship focused. That means we treat you as a person, not a disease; we listen to you; we communicate with you; we take the time to understand the consequences your illness imposes on your daily life; we try to understand your needs, values, and priorities.
