Welcome To Sharlin Health and Neurology
Sharlin Health and Neurology is a premier outpatient neurology and functional medicine practice. We take a personalized, integrated approach to patient care that involves not only pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, but modifiable lifestyle factors, genetics, nutraceuticals, and advanced functional medicine testing for diagnosis and tracking of therapeutic progress.
We evaluate and treat all aspects of neurology and specific focus areas in functional medicine. Our functional medicine focus areas are multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and other memory loss disorders, Parkinson’s disease, migraine, epilepsy, and fibromyalgia. In addition, our general neurology practice includes evaluation and treatment of neuropathy, and sleep disorders (such as sleep apnea and narcolepsy), and patients with complex symptoms presentations including weakness, numbness, imbalance, memory loss, pain, and fatigue. We have extensive experience in the clinical use of Botox for management of migraine, blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm, cervical dystonia and spasticity. We manage many patients with implanted Vagal Nerve Stimulators (VNS – LivaNova) for intractable epilepsy, and with Baclofen pumps for spasticity. We perform standard neurodiagnostics, including nerve conduction testing/electomyography (NCT/EMG), electroencephalography (EEG), and polysomnography.
Dr. Ken Sharlin
Our General Neurology practice accepts Medicare, Missouri Medicaid, TriCare, United Healthcare and some Blue Cross plans for consultation that includes diagnosis, recommendations, and disease management. In this part of the practice Dr. Sharlin sees patients by referral only.
Our Functional Medicine program is a direct-pay multidisciplinary program that includes physician evaluation and recommendations, group education, advanced laboratory testing, and nutraceutical strategies. It is a team approach that employs uniquely qualified experts in neurology, nutrition, energy medicine, manual therapy, and exercise.
To achieve its goals Sharlin Health and Neurology uses emerging technologies and their corresponding analytical tools to implement care and track outcomes, nutrition science and personalized lifestyle management, self-quantification tools, and social-driven networks.
At Sharlin Health and Neurology the therapeutic partnership empowers the patients to take ownership of their own healing. We fundamentally believe that active participants in the development of their therapeutic plan feel more in control of their own well being and are more likely to make sustained lifestyle changes to improve their health.
