Coastal Neurology Services has been providing adults and children with comprehensive and trusted care since 1983. Our board-certified physicians specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and management of an array of neurological disorders, including headaches, autism, ADHD, neuropathy, sleep disorders, small-fiber polyneuropathy, stroke and more.
Coastal Neurology's experienced, fellowship-trained physicians in clinical neurophysiology are board certified in the care of epilepsy & seizures, neuropathy & neuromuscular conditions, sleep disorders and movement disorders.
Botox injections are also available right here at the office for the treatment of certain neurological conditions, including migraines, dystonia and blepharospasm.
World-class epilepsy care is available right here on the Seacoast. Through Wentworth-Douglass Hospital’s affiliation with Massachusetts General Hospital, patients will have direct access to expect sub-specialty care for epilepsy and related disorders.
Coastal Neurology’s Epilepsy Clinic, led by Mass General Neurologist Daniel Hoch, MD, PhD, provides consultation, diagnosis, testing and EEG monitoring, and disease management to improve the lives and health of patients experiencing seizures.
For more information, please call the office at (603) 749-0913.
Dr. Khosro Farhad works in collaboration with Mass General's Dr. Anne Louise Oaklander to research and treat dysfunction of a specific type of peripheral nerve cells, the “small fibers.” These neurons, outside the brain and spinal cord, can’t be seen under a microscope and aren’t detected by common nerve damage tests.
Through this collaboration, Coastal Neurology offers skin biopsies for small-fiber neuropathy that are analyzed at Mass General. The two doctors are developing a standardized neurological exam to detect SFPN and enable patients to be tracked to assess the effects of various treatments. Their recent research, published in Therapeutic Advances in Neurological Disorders, discusses an effective treatment of intravenous immunoglobulin that had the potential to improve nerve damage in patients diagnosed with what appeared to be autoimmune SFPN.
