  • The patient’s contact information (name, address and phone numbers).
  • Insurance information.
  • Pertinent medical records, including clinic notes, lab results, neuropsychological test reports, and brain imaging reports and films, preferably on computer disc.

We will contact your patient once we have received his or her medical records and they have been reviewed by one of our team members. This process typically takes no more than a week. You may submit medical records by mail or fax to Mary Ann Wylie, above.


Our team will need to see the following information prior to your scheduled visit:

Once we have received your records, they will be reviewed by one of our physicians.  Receiving records in advance helps our team prepare more fully for your evaluation. You or your referring physician may submit medical records by mail or fax to Mary Anne Wylie, above. 


Prior to your schedule appointment, you will receive the following information in the mail:

  • A letter confirming you appointment

Please fill out the questionnaires and send them prior to your appointment. We also request that you bring:

Our physicians may request testing such as blood work, electroencephalogram (EEG), brain imaging, or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis (i.e., a lumbar puncture, LP, or “spinal tap”) prior to the evaluation or follow-up visit. If this is the case, specific instructions will be provided to you before the appointment.  Please call us at 410-502-2981 if any questions arise in obtaining the requested tests.
