Get to Know Our Neurology Team

Strokes, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s – these neurological illnesses and others have serious implications for patients and families. As the command center of the body, your brain controls just about everything and is connected to an infinitely complex system of nerves. When something goes wrong with the nervous system, the entire body suffers and daily tasks become difficult. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with neurological disorder, our experienced neurologists can offer skilled care, comfort, and hope.

LeBauer’s neurology team, which includes four board-certified physicians, brings comprehensive care to the Piedmont Triad region. Our physicians are leaders in research and treatment of complex neurological disorders and are dedicated to truly investing in your health – because when there’s much at stake, there’s opportunity for life-changing, exceptional care.
