WHAT IS A NEUROHOSPITALIST?
A neurohospitalist is a neurologist that primarily provides consultative care to patients requiring inpatient care due to serious illness. While our neurohospitalists are Hattiesburg Clinic providers, they only serve in the hospital setting and do not manage chronic neurological conditions. They work closely with hospital staff and consult with the patient’s attending provider in the hospital on behalf of the patient.
