Your Clinic Visit

How to prepare

To best serve our veterans, we ask that you plan to arrive 15 - 20 minutes early to allow time for parking and to ensure that you have the maximum amount of time to visit with your provider. Your provider will be alerted once you check-in at the front desk area on the ground floor of Building 104. If you were recently evaluated at a non-VA hospital, medical center, or doctor's office, please bring those medical records to your appointment. If you do not have these records, please contact our office and we will request them for you.

What to expect from your appointment

Initial consultations are typically allotted one hour to allow time for a comprehensive examination. During that time, your provider will ask you questions and take a detailed account of your medical history, symptoms, and medication, while also performing a neurological examination. Family members and caregivers are encouraged to attend the visit. At the end of your appointment, your provider will educate you about your condition.  If further testing is necessary, he or she will outline a plan and will schedule a follow-up visit to review the results.  If treatment is warranted, your provider will present the options and discuss the details with you.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask during or at the end of the visit.
 
After your visit, if you have forgotten any information or have more questions, you may contact the Epilepsy Center at 503-220-8262 ext 58330 to get in touch with your provider.
