After your initial visit with a neurologist, you may be referred to one of Tallahassee Neurological Clinic’s allied health professionals for follow-up care. The allied health professionals are board certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants who practice in collaboration with the neurosurgeons, providing a team approach in the management of your health care.
The goal of the allied health professional is to provide you with greater continuity and access to neurosurgical care. Their appointments are structured so that they can speak with you in depth about your diagnosis and test results. Allied health professionals are highly skilled in teaching and counseling to help you better manage your condition. They will report back to your doctor to keep him or her updated on your condition until your next follow-up visit.
