Ambulatory Stroke Clinic

The Stroke Clinic provides care, medical follow-up and education for patients who have had a stroke. 

How do I prepare for my appointment/visit?

  • Plan to arrive 20 minutes early to find parking and check-in for your appointment.
  • Bring a list of all the medications you take, including over-the-counter medications (those bought without a prescription), vitamins, and supplements.
  • Write down any concerns or questions you may have regarding your symptoms.

What will happen at my appointment?  

The neurologist will review your medical history and complete a neurological exam. Be open and honest with the team about how you are feeling, your symptoms, and how you take your medication. This is important so we can find the best ways to help you feel as well as possible.

Will there be any follow-up?

Follow-up will be discussed between you and your neurologist. A follow-up appointment letter will be sent to you by mail.
