Who We Are.

Michigan Institute for Neurological-Disorders

Michigan Institute for Neurological Disorders (MIND) is the area’s leading provider of care for the full range of injuries and disorders of the brain, spine and nervous system. Our team of doctors are experts in their field, offering compassionate, comprehensive treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, movement disorders, epilepsy, headaches, migraines and spinal disorders, along with all other neurological conditions, ranging from the common to rare.

Founded in 1969 as Glendale Neurological Associates, MIND has grown to be the largest and most comprehensive private neurological practice in Michigan.  Louis E. Rentz, D.O., F.A.C.N. and the late Fred Marshall, D.O., F.A.C.N. established our practice, creating a foundation of excellence and innovation and putting into practice a core set of values. More than 40 years later, we continue to build upon that same strong foundation and, while times and technologies have changed, those values have not.

MIND is committed to:

  • Providing the best neurological care possible to our patients in a warm and caring environment
  • Ensuring that patients obtain necessary diagnostic studies of the highest caliber in a timely manner
  • Offering facilities and staff committed to providing and therapeutic services in an safe and efficient setting
  • Providing cutting edge technology and research in order to enhance patient care and outcomes

Our Physicians & Staff

Our physicians are involved in the treatment, teaching and research of the full range of neurological disorders, serving as neurology residency directors at many local hospitals. Most also hold appointments from universities including Michigan State University (MSU) College of Human Medicine, MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, Oakland University School of Medicine and Wayne State University School of Medicine, to name a few.

All MIND physicians are currently accepting new patients.
