Local Neurologist One of Few In Country With Certification


Kevin R. Hargrave, M.D., Medical Director of Neuroscience Center of Acadiana at Lafayette General and Co-Medical Director of Sleep Center of Acadiana at Lafayette General, recently received the United Council of Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS) Neuroimaging Certification.

Only 26 physicians in the entire country passed the most recent exam, demonstrating expert knowledge in their subsequent areas. Dr. Hargrave now holds the distinction of being the only physician in Acadiana, and one of six in the entire state, to be considered a UCNS neuroimaging Diplomate. While there are over 16,000 neurologists currently practicing in the U.S., only 206 are physician Diplomates certified in Neuroimaging.

“We are very proud of all the neurologists at Neuroscience Center of Acadiana,” said Al Patin, Chief Administrative Officer for Lafayette General Medical Doctors. “Dr. Hargrave’s accomplishment is no small feat and is a great honor for any physician.”

Dr. Hargrave’s office is located at 134 Hospital Drive, Suite 201, across the street from Lafayette General Medical Center. Clinic office hours are Monday – Thursday, 7 a.m. – 4 p.m., and Friday from 7 a.m. – 11 a.m.  Sleep Center office hours are Monday – Thursday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Friday from 8 a.m. to Noon.
