About Patrick C. Nolan, MD, PhD

  • Dr. Nolan grew up in the Chicago area and moved to Austin with his wife, also a Midwesterner, over 17 years ago “to find a warmer spot.” In his free time, Dr. Nolan enjoys playing music and building musical instruments, as well as other woodworking projects.

I chose medicine because I was inspired as a child by my pediatrician. I found my specialty while doing research in neuroscience as an undergraduate that eventually developed into a PhD thesis. Neurology is a field of medicine that involves a holistic approach to the health of the patient. I enjoy approaching the care of my patient and their often complex medical issues by trying to understand their problem and improving their systems.

Symptoms may include weakness, drooping, or numbness of the face, arm, or leg, usually on one side of the body, having trouble reading, speaking or understanding, problems with vision, such as dimness or loss of vision in one or both eyes, dizziness or problems with balance or coordination.
