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.
