Preparing for your Appointment:

  • Please confirm the date and time of your appointment a few days before the actual appointment especially if you have multiple tests (X-Rays, MRI, CT, Shunt patency, physical therapy appointments) scheduled on the same day. These appointments may be at different location from where the Neurology or Neurosurgery Clinics are located.

  • Please arrive 30 minutes before your first scheduled appointment to allow enough time to park your car and register.

  • If you cannot keep your appointment, please call us at 410-955-7482 or 410-550-1470 to cancel the appointment at least 48 hours in advance so we may schedule another patient from the waiting list.

  • We encourage you to bring a book or snack with you so that you are comfortable before and in between appointments with the physicians and other tests.

  • In addition to the physicians you may be assessed by physician assistants, nurse practitioners and physical therapists. They may administer multiple tests to assess your balance, gait and memory before you see the physician.

  • If you already have a shunt, don’t forget to bring your shunt card with you to the appointment.
