These days, hospitals have their own doctors, and general practitioners do not go to the hospitals, so you will not see the same doctor inside the hospital as out, except for specialists. A neurologist should have hospital privileges, so if he or she puts you in the hospital for a neurologic condition, you should continue to see the same doctor for that condition, and hospital doctors for everything else. The key is to get a neurologist who understands the condition and how best to treat it.
