Neurological Conditions

Comprehensive Care for Neurological Conditions
Neurological conditions significantly impact a person’s quality of life. These conditions affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, leading to a variety of symptoms such as seizures, weakness, memory loss, and balance problems. Our neurology clinics in Chula Vista, San Marcos, and Temecula are dedicated to providing comprehensive care to patients and their families living with neurological conditions.
Our team of board-certified neurologists and advanced practice providers utilize advanced technology to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions.

Specialized Treatments for Dementia and Alzheimer’s
Our neurology clinics in Chula Vista, San Marcos, and Temecula recognize the importance of specialized care for individuals living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. We provide dedicated treatment options and therapies tailored to the unique needs of these patients.
Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are progressive conditions that affect memory, cognition, and behavior. Our neurologists at The Neuron Clinic understand the challenges faced by patients and families and provide support throughout the treatment process. We work closely with families to develop personalized care plans that treat the whole person and not just their medical condition.
In addition to personalized care plans, our clinic offers specialized treatments for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Our research team provides access to the newest therapies available that are being tested through clinical trials. These trials allow patients to receive innovative treatments that have the potential to slow down the progression of dementia. By participating in these trials, patients also contribute to the advancement of medical knowledge and potentially benefit from cutting-edge therapies.

Leqembi (Lecanemab) Treatment
Leqembi (Lecanemab) infusions are a promising new treatment option to slow down the cognitive and functional decline associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Leqembi treatment is a targeted approach to reduce the accumulation of amyloid beta protein, which research has shown to play a critical role in the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. By reducing the accumulation of amyloid plaques in the brain, this medication and others like it delay cognitive decline in individuals with Alzheimer’s disease. This translates to better quality of life for both patients, families, and caregivers.

What is Leqembi and How Does it Work?
Leqembi is an antibody therapy designed to target the amyloid beta protein, which contributes to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. By binding to and clearing amyloid plaques from the brain, Leqembi slows down the progression of the disease.

Who Qualifies for Leqembi Infusions?
Individuals with mild cognitive impairment or mild dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease are candidates for Leqembi infusions. Our neurology team will review your medical history, perform a thorough evaluation and confirm the presence of the amyloid protein to make sure you qualify for Leqembi.
