Corbett Neurophysiology Services has been established in Queensland for over 25 years. In that time, we have grown from a single practice in Southport to three permanent locations across Queensland, including Brisbane CBD and Ipswich.
We are committed to providing a high level of professional service and quality care and are driven by a strong patient-focus. We utilise the most advanced technology available and our Neurologists and Neurophysiology Scientists undertake regular and extensive training to ensure that their knowledge and skills remain industry-current.
Most of our services are fully bulk-billed. We also cater for WorkCover and insurance patients.

What is Neurology?
Neurology is a medical speciality which deals with physical disorders affecting the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles. Neurologists mostly deal with diseases where there is a physical disturbance to the structure of nerve tissue.
Since the brain and nervous system control a great number of functions in the body, the subject of Neurology is relevant to a wide range of diseases including headaches, epilepsy, strokes, multiple sclerosis, dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
Neurologists are also often involved in assessing patients with problems affecting the spine and in assessing and treating various types of pain.
What is Neurophysiology?
Neurophysiology is a sub-specialty of Neurology. It is the study of how nerve cells (neurones) receive and transmit information, both electronically and chemically.
Neurophysiology testing uses computer, electrical, magnetic and electronic means to investigate the function of the brain, spinal cord, spinal roots, peripheral nerves and muscles to diagnose disorders of the peripheral nervous system (such as carpal tunnel syndrome).
