How To Prepare For Your New Patient Visit
At the IMSMP, our new patient evaluation is divided between two visits. At the ‘assessment visit,’ the physician will obtain your history and perform a neurologic exam. Please allow up to two hours for the appointment. Your doctor may then decide to send you for additional diagnostic tests, if necessary, in order to complete your assessment. Shortly after that initial visit, you will return for the ‘management visit’, in which your doctor will discuss a comprehensive plan for your care. This visit may be up to one and a half hours or until every question you have is answered by your neurologist.
