Who will I see?
Who you see depends on your condition. Neurology has several areas that doctors specialize in.
Do I need to bring a disk of my scans?

Please do not rely on the facility doing the scans or your referring physician's office to send them to us. You may be asked to reschedule if you do not have your disk. Please bring your disk to your appointment with you.
