The Neurology Center staff are sensitive to the individual needs, different lifestyles, and varying circumstances that exist among patients. They understand that many factors - age, marital status, family support systems, work status, and finances - influence the types of concerns that may surface when an individual has or is diagnosed with a neurological disorder. Therefore, patients can expect the following during their care:
- An explanation of their disorder in language they can understand.
- Information regarding procedures prescribed for their care.
- Discussion of test results.
- Involvement in the decision-making process regarding treatment alternatives.
When you arrive for your appointment, you will be asked for the following items:
- Insurance Card(s)
- Photo ID
- If not the policy holder you will have to provide SS# and date of birth
- Pharmacy Information - list of all current medicines including dosages and strengthe of medicine
- Referral Form (if applicable)
- Co-pay or coinsurance (if applicable, we take cash, check and credit cards)
- Test results if applicable (lab, MRI, CT, Films/CT and reports)
During your first consultation appointment, which may range between 30 to 60 minutes, the neurologist will make an assessment of your complaint and your general and neurological health. He/she may review old medical records or reports. By the conclusion of the visit, your neurologist will have developed a plan of action for you. Recommendations may be made for diagnostic or imaging tests to confirm or rule out conditions. Medicines may be prescribed and, more than likely, a follow-up visit will be required to review with you the results of any additional testing and for continued treatment.
