Visiting Neurologist Joins Horizon Health

Visiting Neurologist Joins Horizon Health


Rakesh Garg, MD, board certified neurologist, has joined Horizon Health as a visiting physician in the Acklin-Shackelford Clinic.

Dr. Garg treats patients age 12 and older for all types of neurological conditions, including those that affect the brain and spinal cord. He sees patients in the clinic a full week each month.

As part of his practice, Dr. Garg performs Electromyography (EMG) testing to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them. EMG results can reveal nerve and muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission in any part of the body.

Dr. Garg also performs electroencephalogram (EEG) testing that records electrical patterns in the brain. The test helps diagnose conditions such as seizures, epilepsy, head injuries, dizziness, headaches, and brain tumors.

Dr. Garg has operated a private practice in Peru, Illinois, for 40 years. He has three sons, each of whom is a neurologist in Chicago.

Dr. Garg attended medical school in India, where he was born and raised. He performed a neurology residency at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Pa. He was the chief resident in neurology at the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington, Ky, where he also became a fellow in neurophysiology.
