Dr. Charles Fiore is one of the few physicians in the region trained in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders such as neuropathies (disorders of the peripheral nerves), radiculopathies (pinched nerves in the neck or back that usually result in numbness or weakness and myopathies (acquired diseases of the muscles that can result in weakness).

Through an affiliation with LSU, Dr. Fiore has collaborated on a treatment plan for Parkinson’s Disease that can involve placement of a deep brain stimulator to ease the involuntary movements of the condition, as well as tremors from other conditions. “That’s the benefit of the team environment we have here at the clinic,” Fiore says. “Patients can have consultations in one convenient location.”

Because of his training and a personal interest in neuromuscular disorders, Dr. Fiore is committed to advancing his practice to include the most recent treatment options.
