The Stanford Comprehensive Neurology & Neurosurgery Clinic in Emeryville

The Stanford Comprehensive Neurology & Neurosurgery Clinic in Emeryville offers a broad range of neurologic expertise and care to the East Bay population.  Our faculty manage a large range of neurologic conditions and offer an academic perspective to the diagnosis and treatment of our patients. We work closely with our local primary care, pain management, neurosurgical, and orthopedic surgery colleagues to provide a coordinated approach to patient care. Additionally, because our faculty see patients both in Palo Alto and at the Emeryville location, we have close relationships to neurology subspecialists in Palo Alto and coordinate with subspecialty care as needed.

In addition to clinic services, Stanford Neurology in Emeryville is also equipped with a Neurodiagnostic Lab with EMG/NCS (Electromyography/Nerve Conduction Study) and EEG (Electroencephalogram) capabilities. These tests can be performed to diagnose and direct treatment of neurologic conditions for our patients.
