Having practiced in southwest Florida for more than 20 years as a Board-Certified Neurologist, one thing is certain in health care: getting people moving and keeping them active is the key to health care. But there are so many illnesses and injuries that can prevent people from being active; from simple sprains and strains of ligaments and muscles, to arthritis and back pain, and to medical problems such as neurologic conditions, heart, or lung disease. Physical therapy can be the key that can unlock your health! 


Our very own Dr. Kandel co-founded Art Fest Naples 21 years ago with Naples artist Patsy Reeves. Since then, we have been so proud to be a part of this amazing event. This year, Neurology Office was the proud sponsor of Art Fest Naples on behalf of Foundation for the Developmentally Disabled, a 35-year-old Naples organization that successfully serves adults in employment and recreational programs.

The Art Fest Naples also benefited Additional Needs Inc. Additional Needs' vision is to change society’s perspective from the label of disability to one of additional needs using the website as a platform. Learn more at

For far too many adults, the holiday season can mean "headache season". Whether you are hosting the family, scouring the malls for gifts or enjoying an endless buffet of holiday treats, the holidays can often be a very stressful time.  

As you may know, stress and diet are two of the most common causes of headaches. But, sometimes this hectic time of year can trigger symptoms that feel a bit worse than a common headache. 

So, before you suppress these symptoms, take the time to seek whether you are truly suffering from a common headache or much worse... a migraine.
