For Medical Professionals


The Cedars-Sinai Department of Neurology works with the referring physician to determine the best course of treatment for each patient, and keeps the physician apprised of the patient's status. In many cases, the patient is referred back to the primary care physician for continued management, although the neurology specialists at Cedars-Sinai remain available for consultation.

If you have a patient you believe would benefit from the expertise of our neurology specialists, please call our physician-to-physician consultation line at 310-423-6472, or e-mail us at
