Our Process

Doctor Patient Relations

 

We will make a special effort to explain your condition, medication, treatment, etc. Should you have a question or if something is not clear, please do not hesitate to ask. Our personnel, office procedures and medical equipment were chosen with much thought and care to provide the best quality medical services in a pleasant, efficient and friendly atmosphere.

Appointments

 

We make every effort to see all patients at their appointed time and request that you extend the same courtesy to us. On occasion emergencies do arise and whenever possible, you will be informed of any delay. We request that you notify our office immediately if you will be late for your scheduled appointment. This allows us to utilize the time to tend to other patients.

 

On your first visit to the Palm Beach Neurological Center, your doctor will review your medical background with special attention to present problems. A neurological exam will include tests of cranial nerves, strength, coordination, reflexes and sensation. The doctor will review any medical reports, x-rays and medications you provide. Your examination may indicate the need for additional testing to determine the diagnosis and lead to a specific treatment. A follow-up visit will be scheduled to discuss the results of tests and treatment. It is very important to keep these scheduled appointments.
