We understand that many patients are a bit apprehensive and anxious at the thought of having to make an appointment with a neurologist. You can be rest assured knowing that your care is extremely important to us and we will keep you informed every step of the way. Please be sure to review our patient information for details on what to bring to your neurological consultation.
Here is what you can expect during your neurological consultation:
Review of your medical history.
Review of your family medical history.
Determine if a neurological condition exists by neurological and medical examination.
Schedule tests and follow up appointments, if necessary.
Your neurologist will schedule an MRI if they believe it will be helpful in ruling out certain neurological disorders. If you have had a CT scan or MRI scan recently, be sure to bring your old CT scan or MRI scan along with the report of the scan.
There have been tremendous advances over the past twenty years in treating many neurological disorders. There are a variety of medications and alternative treatments now available that have taken the place of surgery.
If you need surgery you will be directly referred to the most competent Neurosurgeons on an urgent basis.
