The Hartford HealthCare Ayer Neuroscience Institute at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital (CHH) has moved to a new location at the Hungerford Center, Suite 3, 780 Litchfield St. in Torrington.

The new location is just up the hill and still on the Hospital Campus. The practice has greatly increased access to neurology services and is now staffed by neurologists Dr. Hugh Cahill, Dr. Lucas Meira-Benchaya, Dr. Sarah Meira-Benchaya and Dr. Nabi Chowdury and Physician Assistant Sabra Becker. Dr. Chowdhury is also accepting patients one day a week at the new CHH Specialty Care office at 76 Watertown Road in Thomaston.

Hartford HealthCare Ayer Neuroscience Institute at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital offers neurological evaluations, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the brain, spinal cord and nervous system. Our neurologists employ sophisticated technology, to diagnose and treat conditions such as movement disorders, headache, stroke, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, peripheral neuropathy and others.

The field of neuroscience — the study of the nervous system and its structure — is growing. Not only is neuroscience concerned with the normal functioning of the nervous system, but also what happens to the nervous system when people have neurological, psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders.

Hartford HealthCare’s Ayer Neuroscience Institute offers several programs, including Epilepsy, Stroke, Movement Disorders, Hearing and Balance, Memory Care, Neuro-Oncology, Headache, Sleep Disorders, Spine, Neurosurgery, Pain Management and Neuromuscular Disorders. Learn more here
