University Neurology Cole Neuroscience Center

University Neurology Cole Neuroscience Center

Welcome to the University Neurology Cole Neuroscience Center. We are a full-service neurology clinic, offering neurological consultation, Nerve Conduction Studies (electrical testing of nerve function), EMG (a test of muscle and nerve function), and EEG (brainwave testing).  

Our Center was established as a result of the generous support of Robert and Monica Cole and the Cole Family Foundation. The Cole Family Foundation made a strong commitment not only to clinical care, but also to research in the field of neuroscience. Through solid leadership and financial support of the  Cole Family Foundation the commitment to clinical excellence is evidenced by the growth in the patient population from a few hundred fifteen years ago to over 5,000 patients. Scientific research started with Cole Family’s participation as the major benefactor in the acquisition of the first PET scan at  The University of Tennessee Medical Center  and the endowment of a chair in Molecular Neuro Imaging. 

Our Services

Our specialists work together to develop treatment plans that assist the entire family. From access to the latest diagnostic tools and the newest clinical trials, to offering counseling and long-term care options, the University Neurology Cole Neuroscience Center has so much to offer – especially hope.

Our Approach to Patient Care

We take a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. This effort is coordinated by our neurologists—as well as advanced registered nurse practitioners, social workers, registered nurses and a team of cognitive evaluation specialists.

Spanning beyond traditional approaches, the primary medical team also consults with neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, nutritionists, and physical, occupational, respiratory, and speech therapists. The result of this collaboration is a unique program of care developed with each patient and their caregiver that addresses all their specific needs.
