State-of-the-Art Neurophysiology Lab in Ladera Ranch
Dr. Ying Peng MD, Ph.D. offers a state-of-the-art neurophysiology lab at her private neurology practice in Ladera Ranch. Our neurodiagnostic lab is a comprehensive neurophysiology laboratory equipped with the latest technology required for superior results. Our testing includes EEG (Electroencephalography), VTM (Ambulatory Continuous Video-EEG Telemetry study), EMG (Electromyography and nerve conduction studies), and evoked potentials. By using the EEG and EMG machines, we are able to analyze the electrical activity of the brain, which is integral to the proper diagnosis of neurodiagnostic procedures.
Orange County’s Diagnostic Clinic for Neurological Disorders
Dr. Peng’s private neurology practice has been Orange County’s most trusted diagnostic clinic for neurological disorders. In addition to her Pediatric Neurology Residency and Child Neurology Fellowship training, Dr. Peng completed an additional 2-year Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship at UCI Medical Center in Orange, California. She offers all her patients a heightened level of care and attention throughout their entire experience. Dr. Peng has the subspecialty training and board certification in these specialized areas.
She supervises the lab while a staff of neurophysiology technologists administer tests. Upon referral from a neurologist or other physician, patients are tested for seizures as well as nerve and/or muscle diseases. These tests are instrumental in guiding us toward an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan for each of our patients.

Neurophysiology Tests Offered
- EEG (Electroencephalography) – Testing of brain waves for epilepsy and other conditions
- EMG (Electromyography and nerve conduction studies) – Evaluation of diseases of nerves and muscles—such as peripheral neuropathy and radiculopathy (pinched nerves)—is performed. Quantitative sensory testing is also done for peripheral neuropathy.
- Evoked Potential Test – Electrodes are placed on the head to record brain waves in order to measure the amount of time
- VTM (Ambulatory Video-EEG telemetry study) – Diagnosis clinical spells and ascertain seizure types and syndromes [24-72 hrs]
