Adult & Pediatric Neurology

When treating patients at Vascular Neurology of Southern California, Dr. Label focuses on the diagnosis, management and treatment of neurological disorders in adults and children, either as their principal care provider or as an advisor to their physician. Dr. Label is experienced in treating patients with the following conditions:

Alzheimer’s Disease - a progressive disease where brain cells and cell connections die at a rapid rate resulting in memory loss and deterioration of other vital brain functions

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) - a brain disorder that makes it challenging to focus or control behavior and impulsivity

Brain Injury - injuries fall in one of two categories: traumatic brain injury (TBI), typically the result of a severe blow to the head, and acquired brain injury (ABI), an all-encompassing term for any injury post-birth

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - a pinched nerve in the wrist causing tingling and numbness in the hand

Concussion - a brain injury typically caused by a blow to the head resulting in headache, confusion, memory loss, nausea, fatigue and personality changes (temporary or long-term)

Dementia - a syndrome that reduces a person’s ability to perform everyday activities independently; it is typically caused by Alzheimer’s disease

Epilepsy - a disorder in which nerve cell activity in the brain is disrupted resulting in seizures

Essential Tremor - a neurological disorder characterized by involuntary, rhythmic shaking

Head Trauma - any damage to the brain, skull or scalp caused by an injury

Headaches and Migraines - characterized by a pain in the head or face that is dull or throbbing, along with other symptoms

Memory changes - any issues with recollection in short or long-term memories

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) - an autoimmune disease in which the immune system damages the protective covering of nerves disrupting communication between the brain and the body

Neuromuscular Diseases - a wide range of diseases that affect the nervous system resulting in temporary or progressive muscle weakness; for example, myasthenia gravis and myopathy

Parkinson’s Disease - a central nervous system disorder characterized by involuntary tremors, stillness and walking difficulties

Peripheral Nerve Disorders - damage to nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord often resulting in weaknesses, numbness, tingling and pain

Radiculopathy - a disease caused by a pinched nerve or tumor at the root of a nerve in the neck or low back

Seizure Disorders - any disorder in which the activity of the brain’s nerve cells is disrupted resulting in confusion or loss of consciousness (syncope)

Stroke - a life-threatening medical emergency where the blood flow to the brain is interrupted

Syncope - sudden loss of consciousness due to a drop in blood pressure

Tension Headache - a mild to moderate headache characterized by pressure in a band-like path around the head

Tourette Syndrome - a nervous system disorder characterized by sudden, repetitive, unwanted movements called tics and unwanted vocal sounds

Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) - a temporary period of symptoms similar to a stroke

Trigeminal Neuralgia - Chronic severe pain in the face coming from the trigeminal nerve

In addition, Dr. Label performs and interprets EEG, electromyography (EMG) and nerve studies (electroencephalograms).
