During your initial visit you will be seen by our staff who will ask you about your medical history and your symptoms. A focused neurological examination will then be made by your doctor.
While many patients want to discuss in great detail the exact event which may have caused their injury, the most important information your health care team needs involves your symptoms (such as where you have pain, weakness, numbness, etc.) and what limitations these symptoms place on your every day activities. Please take the time to write down this information.
After reviewing your medical history and diagnostic tests, you will be presented with a number of treatment options. We will inform you of the risks and benefits of each option and will assist you in making the final decision concerning which option is best for you.
As part of your visit, we will take a history of your symptoms and perform a physical examination. If you already have x-rays, MRIs or other diagnostic images, please bring them with you to your office visit. We may order other tests and images during your visit to confirm a diagnosis. Once we determine your diagnosis, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan to meet your particular medical needs.
If you have any questions regarding your diagnosis or treatment, or office policy and procedure, please call our office. Your call will be returned during our normal business hours.
