Diagnosing and managing your neurologic disorder is a partnership between you and your neurologist. Much of this partnership relies upon sharing your health information. You want your doctor to know all about your symptoms, medical history, and any prior test results. This way he or she can be more effective in diagnosing and treating your disorder.
You can get the most out of your visit if you are fully prepared. Most people visiting a neurologist want and need to have the following questions answered:
- What type of disorder do I have?
- How will this disorder affect my health?
- What is the treatment and what will it do?
- How will this disorder affect my daily life and activities?
What to Bring to the Appointment:
- Insurance card and a photo ID.
- Physician referral form if required by your insurance provider.
- A list of medications including the dose and frequency.
- Completed patient intake forms (download these forms here) so we can expedite your first visit.
- Better still, call our office, submit your email address and access our patient portal to submit this information electronically: Click here to access patient portal.
- Any recent EEG’s, EMG’s, CT scans, MRI’s or other test results related to your condition.
