The Appointment

  • Dr. McCasland allows ample time for thorough evaluation, including review of medical records from other providers.  If you have MRI or other types of films, please bring them with you, and remember that the actual films are more valuable than the report.
  • During the initial evaluation, Dr. McCasland interviews patients alone, away from family members.  This is crucial to proper neurologic evaluation and is our office policy.  Family members are invited to hear the doctors’ opinions and recommendations, and to ask questions, after the examination.
  • If you have been referred for or will be undergoing EMG testing, please come to the appointment with clean, dry skin – no lotions or oils, as they interfere with the testing process.  You may, of course, apply these when the test is completed.
