History of Practice
Memphis Neurology is a multi-practitioner group unique in the Mid-South in that patients are cared for from infancy through adulthood. The practice opened in the early 1970s as Pediatric Neurology at Le Bonheur Hospital, which, for decades was the only pediatric neurology provider in the tri-state area.
Pediatric Neurology was the first practice in the area to provide care in the outlying communities, opening satellite offices in Paragould, West Memphis, Tupelo, and Jackson, Tennessee. Dr. J.T. Jabbour and Dr. Robert M. Boehm, two of the founding partners, served patients in East Tennessee and central Mississippi, in addition to those in the greater Memphis area.
Today, the practice still treats children with conditions such as headaches, seizures, developmental delay, autism, learning disorders, and attention deficit disorder. In 2000, the adult division was added to the practice treating those suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s, dementia, strokes, seizures, MS, and migraine headaches.
The practice is equipped with a neurodiagnostic lab that offers services for both our patients and those referred by other healthcare professionals. EEGs and EMGs are performed at the Germantown, TN and Southaven, MS offices. We also provide epilepsy monitoring unit and ambulatory testing in the Germantown office. Botox injections for chronic migraine headaches, muscle spasticity, cervical dystonia, and hyperhydrosis are available at both locations. For patients with seizures that are difficult to control through medication alone, the option of a vagal nerve stimulator (VNS) is available, as necessary as part of an overall comprehensive seizure monitoring and care program. Memphis Neurology also participates in various clinical studies and trials.
To assure continuity of care, Drs. Natarajan and Sonone provide adult patient care in both locations with the support of nurse practitioners Amanda Humbers, Jesse Sawyer, Liz Phillips, and Lindsey Howell. Drs. Jalandoni, and Solanki offer pediatric patient care in both locations with nurse practitioner Amy Dempsey. Our physicians also treat patients at Methodist Germantown, Methodist Olive Branch, and Baptist Desoto Hospitals. Recently, the practice has also launched the Memphis Headache Clinic, which sees pediatric and adult patients with all types of headaches.
With two locations in Tennessee and Mississippi and a wide array of patient care services, Memphis Neurology strives to provide both convenient and comprehensive neurologic care for patients of all ages.
