Neurologist in Morganville, New Jersey
Dr. Maria Choy is a highly qualified neurologist fellowship-trained by New York City doctors at some of the most prestigious hospitals. She completed her BA/MD at Boston University, followed by a medical internship at Harlem Hospital (Columbia University ), a neurology residency at Albert Einstein Affiliated Hospitals, and neuromuscular/EMG fellowship at Hospital for Special Surgery (Cornell University).
In her years of practicing neurology and evidenced-based medicine, Dr. Choy has found that many neurological disorders are affected by poor nutrition and lifestyle choices. By integrating nutrition counseling, homeopathic medicine, and acupuncture into her neurology practice, Dr. Choy treats the patient as a whole, focusing on total wellness – not just managing disease symptoms.
Common neurology-related conditions we treat include:
- Tension Headaches
- Cluster Headaches
- Migraine Headaches
- Neuropathy (Nerve Pain)
- Peripheral Neuropathy
- Cervical Radiculopathy
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- And more
Dr. Choy will typically begin the evaluation by a thorough interview and exam. Filling out your medical forms ahead of time will help us gather the background information needed for a full wellness and sickness evaluation. When indicated, Dr. Choy will perform an EMG/NCS to assess the health of muscles and nerves. A small electrical impulse is applied to nerves in order to determine if they are functioning correctly. Then a dry needle with a microphone recorder will be applied to different muscles to find out how they are working. The aim is to verify if any nerves or muscles are affected so that Dr. Choy can make an accurate diagnosis and decide on the best treatment plan.
