When a stroke happens, it is a very stressful time for patients and their family members. This stress can make it difficult to plan for the future and know what to expect.
What is the Stroke Clinic?
Our Stroke Clinic provides individualized answers to patients’ concerns and questions. It also offers evaluations and consultations for patients who have already had a stroke or are at risk for having a stroke. In addition to serving as an information resource, the Stroke Clinic works with patients and family members to prevent stroke by identifying and controlling risk factors.
What happens in the Stroke Clinic?
During a visit to the Stroke Clinic, patients are evaluated by stroke experts including a neurologist and nurse practitioner, and receive education and resources to help with recovery and stroke prevention. After the evaluation, patients may be referred to other members of the treatment team including physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, or physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians. The stroke team will provide a treatment plan and recommendation information to the patient’s primary care physician.
