Brain Beat Neurology is a unique boutique neurology practice focusing on neuroscience rather than administration. The experience of visiting a doctor has changed a lot over the years. Face-to-face time with a doctor is often limited to 15 minutes or less. At BrainBeat Neurology we are restoring the art of medicine back to its former status by providing patient-focused healthcare. Healthcare should not be rushed.
Neurology is a complex and challenging field of medicine with diagnostic accuracy critical to correct treatment. Adequate appointment scheduling times is one of the most important criteria for patient satisfaction, addressing your questions about your diagnosis and concerns for the future. Treatment related discussions, different management options, preventative and holistic medical care all are key to successful management. For this reason, my new patient appointment times are 1.5 hours and follow up times, 45 minutes in duration, charged at Medicare rates.
