Bahareh Hassanzadeh, MD, is a board-certified neurologist and fellowship-trained neuro-ophthalmologist with the Orlando Health Neuroscience Institute Neurology Group. She diagnoses and treats patients with neurological conditions such as headache, pseudotumor cerebri/IIH, movement disorders, demyelinating disorders, memory problems, diplopia, pituitary/sellar tumors, brain tumors with vision loss and vision disturbances, pupillary disorders, Horner's syndrome, ocular myasthenia gravis, ptosis, and more.

When to See a Neurologist

Sometimes it is easy to dismiss a headache that won't go away or laugh about memory loss being a part of aging. Although these seem like simple, everyday concerns, they may be symptoms of something more serious. It is time to see a neurologist when one or more symptoms become disruptive and/or painful. Some to watch for include:

  • Chronic migraines
  • Pseudotumor cerebri
  • Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH)
  • Difficulty maintaining balance or moving
  • Dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Numbness and pain
  • Persistent, severe headaches
  • Double vision
  • Droopiness of eyelids
  • Generalized weakness
  • Swallowing problems
  • Vision loss
