Scheduling an Appointment

New appointments are scheduled by the Neurology Call Center at (508) 793-6555.

Preparing For Your Visit

Evaluations and/or treatments may require several hours to complete. Additional appointments may be needed to complete the initial evaluation. These will be scheduled at your convenience for subsequent visits. 

 

If you think your situation is urgent, please let us know when you call. A clinical nurse will call you to discuss the changes in your condition that you are experiencing and evaluate the urgency of the situation. If necessary, your appointment will be rescheduled to an earlier date.

For all appointments please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Call 508-334-9902 and select option 3 to pre-register two days prior to your appointment. 
  • Plan to arrive at the clinic at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to complete the registration process. 
  • BRING YOUR MRI FILMS, NOT JUST THE REPORT to your visit. 
  • Bring all related doctor's notes .  If you do not have copies of previous doctor's notes, send a signed letter (medical release) to each of the appropriate doctors several weeks before your visit requesting that the notes be forwarded to us. 
  • Prepare your own written history of symptoms and make a list of questions to be discussed so that we can best meet your needs. 

 


THE INITIAL VISIT IS SCHEDULED FOR 90 MINUTES AND ROUTINE FOLLOW-UP VISITS FOR 25-40 MINUTES.
 

WE STRIVE TO BE ON TIME, HOWEVER, SOME PATIENTS MAY HAVE URGENT MEDICAL ISSUES THAT REQUIRE A LONGER VISIT THAN ANTICIPATED. 

PLEASE HELP US BE ON TIME BY FOLLOWING THE GUIDELINES.

Appointment Cancellations

We ask that appointments be cancelled at least two business days in advance, so that we may offer that appointment to another patient.

During business hours (8:30-5:00 PM, M-F) phone calls should be made to the Neurology Call Center (508) 793-6555. 

For urgent calls outside normal business hours, call the hospital main number, (508) 334-1000 and ask that the Neurology resident on-call be paged.

For emergencies, call 911.
