Neurological Testing Q & A

What types of neurological testing are available?

At Comprehensive Neurology and Pain Center of Connecticut, Dr. Turok offers extensive in-office neurological testing and lab work, including:

Comprehensive bloodwork

A sample of blood is taken from your arm to test your nutrient levels, blood cell composition, blood sugar levels, and signs of infection or inflammation.

Vestibular authorization testing (VAT) and electronystagmogram (ENG)

These tests are performed with computerized technology to track how your eyes move if you're experiencing dizziness or balance difficulties.

Electroencephalogram (EEG)

During an EEG, small electrodes are attached to your scalp to measure your brain waves. EEGs are used to diagnose conditions like epilepsy, brain tumors, and strokes.

Electromyogram (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS)

These tests are used to assess muscle and nerve activity related to control of your muscles for movement and pain conditions.

Videonystagmography (VNG)

VNG measures abnormal eye movements called nystagmus. If you have nystagmus, it can indicate inner ear problems related to balance and dizziness.

Carotid and transcranial duplex studies

These studies use ultrasound technology to check the blood vessels in your head and neck for blood clots.


Fluoroscopy is a type of X-ray that produces a “real time" video of structures like blood vessels, joints, or your spine. It can be used for diagnosis and treatment of conditions like joint pain, spinal pain, and blood vessel issues.

Ultrasound-guided procedures

Ultrasound is used to create an image of your blood vessels and can be used for diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving blood clots and atherosclerosis.

Lumbar puncture

A lumbar puncture involves inserting a needle into the space around your spinal cord to collect cerebrospinal fluid for testing. It's used to diagnose meningitis and Guillain-Barré syndrome.

As a trained neurologist and anesthesiologist, Dr. Turok has a unique combination of hands-on experience and advanced study to perform these complex tests in the office for your comfort and convenience.

When is neurological testing recommended?

Neurological testing is recommended for the diagnosis of a wide variety of conditions, like:

  • Spinal pain
  • Movement disorders
  • Seizure disorders
  • Dizziness
  • Balance disorders
  • Nerve pain
  • Blood clots

During your initial consultation and exam, Dr. Turok explains which tests are needed to determine your diagnosis and what to expect during each test so you feel as comfortable as possible.

Do I need treatment after neurological testing?

If your neurological test results are positive, you likely need treatment. In some cases, a “watch and wait" approach may be appropriate, though many neurological conditions can worsen quickly, so timely treatment is essential.

Full Stories Of Why
Clients Are Satisfied With Our Treatments

Dr. Turok spent the time to discuss my condition and provided alternative ways to try to treat the condition.  He was very knowledgeable. He and his staff were very friendly.   I would highly recommend this practice. This a follow up to my previous post. Six weeks ago I had PRP treatment for hemifacial spasm and blepharospasm for the left side of my face.  I had been suffering for almost 18 months with this condition. The one treatment gave me 75% improvement with my condition.   I had a second treatment today and hope this is as good as the first. For those who have tried other treatments I highly recommend trying the PRP with Dr. Turok.

I have been recovering from plantar fasciitis and ankle pain for multiple years following multiple basketball injuries and decided to try out Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy a couple of weeks ago. Plantar fasciitis takes a while to recover, so on paper, injecting platelet cells directly into the area will promote healing and speed up this lengthy recovery process so I can get back to my favorite activities as fast as possible. Sure enough, a couple of days after the PRP injection my foot started feeling better. The inflammation has drastically decreased and a lot of pain has gone away. Now, two weeks after the procedure, the foot is still feeling great! Dr. Turok recommends resting the area for 6 weeks after the procedure, so I can only project my injury getting better. Overall, my experience at Connecticut Pain Solutions has been very pleasant. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Turok himself is very knowledgeable and experienced in his practice. The procedure is very quick and painless, so I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to try out new things that might help them during their recovery!

I'm 101 years old and have been in chronic pain in my back and hip for years. I have tried every medication and procedure that has been recommended to me. The only treatment that has given me meaningful relief is the PRP injection provided by Dr. Turok. I am extremely thankful for the relief I am currently experiencing.
