If you’re in need of a neurologist, New Orleans patients, as well as those from Jefferson Parish, the North Shore and the surrounding River Parishes, can contact Healthfinder at 504-456-5000.

We do a great job of identifying and quickly treating head injuries. The Emergency Room staff is very skilled at initially evaluating the patients, and consulting neurology or neurosurgery as needed. By using an MRI or CAT scan, the neurologist or neurosurgeon on call can then diagnose and treat the patient appropriately.
