Our Patient Care Concept
As you know, neurologic and neurosurgical issues can be difficult to diagnose and treat. They frequently require not only multiple diagnostic test/procedures but also the input of several consultants. We are committed to providing the best care of your patients. We will help to direct your patients through what can be a maze of issues, tests and consultants, thereby streamlining the process towards treatment. During weekly case presentation meetings we have developed relationships with a team of consultants including interventional neuro-radiologists, neurologists, vascular surgeons, neuro-otologists, endocrinologists, pain management specialists, critical care specialists, medical and radiation oncologists. We have a great deal of confidence in these specialists, who are dedicated to providing the Oklahoma city area and surrounding communities with the highest quality of healthcare.
We appreciate any input you may have in the care of your patient, including recommending a consultant that you have worked with.
