What is a neurologist and what role does a neurologist play in the medical care of a TBI patient?

A neurologist is a medical doctor who specializes in disorders of the nervous system (brain and spinal cord). The neurologist plays a most essential and critical role in explaining the mechanism of a traumatic brain injury, the results of the clinical examination, the insignificance of diagnostic testing results (which, despite actual TBI are often negative) and examining the legitimacy and credibility of the treating neuropsychologist. It is the neurologist who often renders an opinion as to the disability, treatment, prognosis, and/or permanency of the injuries.
