Five Neurosurgeons, seven Adult Neurologists, four Pediatric Neurologists, a Neuro-Oncologist and an Interventional Pain Management Specialist, along with a Physician Assistant and five Nurse Practitioners, offer complete neurological care to patients of all ages, from infancy through adulthood.

Mission and Vision

At the Center for Neurosciences our patients come first; your satisfaction with our services is the best measure of our success.  In every interaction, we seek to meet your needs above all with our team focus on high quality care.

History

The origins of the Center for Neurosciences date back to 1950, when Tucson’s first neurosurgeon, Juan Fonseca, MD, opened his practice and began working with Charles Elkins, MD.  In 1963, George William Nash, MD, joined their group, which was named Neurological Associates of Tucson.  The group continued under that name until 2006 when they joined forces with Pediatric Neurology Associates to form the Center for Neurosciences.  Today we strive to honor the commitment to quality care that has been at the heart of our practice for 60 years.

Staff and Administration

Every member of our caring staff is here to help and support you while you are seeking treatment at the Center for Neurosciences.  As one of the largest and most active private practices in Southern Arizona, we have assembled an outstanding team to help make your experience with us as positive as possible.
