Dr. Athni is available for detailed Neurologic Consultations in our office.
During your initial visit, we will do a detailed Neurologial history and physical exam.
If a firm diagnosis can be made during the initial visit, we will set forth a treatment plan.
If additional testing is necessary, we will delineate, schedule and follow thru with a diagnostic testing plan, after which a follow-up visit will be scheduled to discuss the results of the diagnostic tests.
After the results are discussed, we will set forth a treatment plan as medically appropriate.
Most diagnostic testing is done in “steps”, starting with the least invasive and slowly progressing to more invasive testing as the need arises.
In-patient, Hospital Consultations
Dr. Athni is also available for any Neurological Consultations that may arise during a hospital admission.
We are affiliated with the Coliseum Health System, with consulting privileges at Coliseum Northside Hospital, located in North Macon.
For in-patient evaluations, we expect you to be admitted under the care of a Hospitalist or your private Internist or Family Practictioner.
If a neurological problem arises which cannot be handled by your admitting physician, he or she will call Dr. Athni for a formal hospital consultation.
We will make all recommendations directly to the admitting physician. If they feel the recommendations are medically appropriate, they will follow thru with these recommendations.

New Info !!
Although there is no "magic" pill to help improve your cognition, the concept of "if you don't use it, you lose it" is absolutely true when it comes to memory and cognition.
There is a new board game called "Sedis" which has been an amazing creation. It is the brainchild of Neal Murthy, based out of Houston.
Sedis is a simple yet cognitively stimulating game, which I have been extremely impressed with. Here is the link to learn more about this game - http://nefergames.com/
Here is the link to purchase one thru their kickstarter campaign - http://bit.ly/sedisgame
