When you're on call...alone...in the middle of the night...On Call Neurology provides you with immediate access to the vital, step-by-step information you need to rise to the occasion! For every complaint, it guides you through the initial evaluation, differential diagnosis, neurologic examination, and treatment planning, so you can face any problem with confidence!
