Josephson-Wallack-Munshower Neurology (JWM) is a group of highly specialized physicians who understand the anxiety, fear, and hopelessness you may be feeling when faced with a neurological disorder. Whether you're challenged with unexplainable headaches, disorders such as epilepsy or Parkinson's disease, or an inability to sleep, we will provide you with expertise and comprehensive care in a compassionate environment. We're one of the state's largest neurology physician groups.
If you suffer from certain diseases and conditions, seeing a neurologist can help you. A neurologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the central nervous system. The central nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves in your body.
In addition to four years of premedical education and four years of medical school, neurologists complete at least three years of specialized training in an accredited neurology residency program.
Some of the diseases and conditions treated by a neurologist are Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), various forms of dementia, sleep disorders, headaches, brain tumors, strokes, seizures, myasthenia gravis, and chronic pain.
Many diseases and conditions treated by a neurologist are treated with medication and/or certain therapies. If your condition necessitates surgery, we will refer you to an appropriate surgeon.

Now Available In Indianapolis: PET-CT Tracer to Help Diagnose Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disturbances
Northwest Radiology and JWM Neurology, both located in Indianapolis, are partnering together to offer the first and only FDA-approved diagnostic PET-CT (Positive Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography) tracer for imaging beta-amyloid neuritic plaques in the living brain. For the first time in clinical practice, physicians are now able to utilize PET-CT scanning to see evidence of amyloid plaques (deposits in the gray matter associated with brain degeneration) when evaluating patients for Alzheimer’s disease and other causes of cognitive decline. Currently, only a neuropathological exam (performed during an autopsy) can definitively diagnose Alzheimer’s disease.
