A patient needs to have their EMG performed correctly the first time and with as little discomfort as possible. I am certified in EMG by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic and Neuromuscular Medicine and have performed over 25000 EMG examinations. Over 750 EMG are performed annually in my practice. The EMG examination begins with a history and brief examination in order to select the correct nerves and muscles to be studied in order to make the procedure as efficient and comfortable as possible.
