In order to meet growing community needs, Neurological Associates of Albany, P.C. has decided to set aside an additional allotment of appointment times for new patients. After consulting with physicians' offices and speaking with several new patients over the phone, we have determined that it is frequently difficult to quickly schedule new patient appointments with a neurologist. While many neurological concerns are not critical, it is always beneficial to the patient to be seen sooner rather than later so that the patient's particular concerns may be addressed promptly, knowledgeably, thoroughly and compassionately. The sooner a patient's diagnosis is determined, the sooner his course of treatment may be begun and the anxiety of uncertainty may be alleviated. In an effort to meet this community need, Neurological Associates of Albany will schedule appointments for new patients within two weeks from their initial request.
