ABOUT OUR PRACTICE
Our office hours are Monday through Thursday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM and 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM on Fridays, Closed daily from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM for lunch.
As neurologists, our practice is limited to the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions. We do not perform surgery but will refer you to a surgeon if your condition indicates. We recommend that you keep a regular follow up with your primary doctor, who could be either a family practice physician or an internal medicine physician.
Please remember that some unattended neurological conditions may result in irreversible or permanent medical consequences. It is important that you comply with your provider’s recommendations. If you do not understand them, please ask for clarification. Further, it is your responsibility to reschedule any missed appointments at your earliest convenience. In addition, tests requested by our group of providers (including but not limited to a laboratory or radiological exams) are important in order to provide adequate diagnosis and monitor your health. Failure to obtain these tests or follow your provider’s directions may result in delaying proper therapies leading to potentially irreversible neurological conditions.
I understand the above statement and will keep my appointment or be responsible to reschedule them at my earliest convenience, including laboratory and other testing appointments and agree to comply with my ppovider’s recommendations. By signing this consent form, I have not waived any of my patient legal rights.
