Meet Dr. Ana Delgado, Neurologist


[MUSIC PLAYING] I’m Ana Delgado. I’m a neurologist. And I work at Bryan Neurology. My father was a
doctor, uncles, too, so I grew up familiar with
environment of what doctors do. And I was really interested
since a very young age. I decided to into
neurology later on, because of the challenges
that neurology brings. I want to try to do the best I
can to help patients to survive neurological conditions
and hopefully improve their quality of life. I think I always have been very
interested in stroke neurology. The central nervous system,
it’s always something that I have been
more attracted to, just because of what the
networking complexity is. That’s my personal interest. Through the years,
that’s what my research has been focused on. Bryan Neurology, we
treat pretty much every condition
that is associated with neurological diseases. Neurology itself is
a very broad field. We not only treat the
health of the brain but also all the
peripheral nervous system. The most common
conditions that we treat will be stroke,
seizures, headaches. We have also a large population
of patients with Parkinson’s disease and dementia. I think the most important
relationship you can establish with the patient is of trust. It’s important for me
to listen to my patients in every opportunity I have
to spend time with them and trying to build
that relationship. Definitely in neurology there
is a multidisciplinary approach, not only when
medications are used but also therapy,
rehabilitation, in many occasions as
well holistic therapy. In neurology, you have to
treat not only the patient, the family member, the
caregiver that comes with them. And then make them
feel comfortable. Because most of the time, it’s
a [? long ?] relationship. If you can make a patient smile
that day, it makes your day. Every day is a
different challenge. We’re trying to give everybody
the most supportive environment we can. We are all very excited
to be part of it. [MUSIC PLAYING]
