When Scheduling an Appointment
To schedule an appointment, please call: 206.668.0111.
When you make your appointment, let the scheduler know the nature of your health concerns. This is essential to allow our providers and staff to plan appropriately for your visit. If you have numerous concerns, you may need more time than is allotted for a standard visit. We may be able to offer a longer appointment time – ask if a longer appointment time is available if you think you’ll need it.
For patients being referred to Northwest Neurology we make every effort to review your records. If you have had Diagnostic Imaging, EEG’s and or EMG’s outside of the UW system we ask that you bring the information with you including the CD images for all MRI’s and CT’s. By doing so, we are able to ensure you have the best possible consult. Please check the status of your referral by calling our office and speaking with our intake coordinator at 206-668-0111.
We ask new patients to arrive 15 minutes early in order to complete our new patient forms and complete the registration process. Please bring a valid Washington state picture identification and insurance card; this is required at check-in.
If you are a current patient and have an urgent or emergent issue that requires assistance from our on-call physician, please use our main number and follow the audio prompts to be connected with our answering service. The answering service will page the doctor, who will respond to you within 30 minutes. We encourage you to write down your concerns before calling so you don’t forget to tell us anything, and have your pharmacy name and number available. Please be aware we do not refill narcotic prescriptions over the weekend. We ask that you inform your physician 24 hours prior to the weekend if you need a narcotic refill.
Canceling & Rescheduling Your Appointment
If you need to reschedule or must miss an appointment, please call us at least one business day before your appointment. Please note there may be a $50.00 service charge billed to your account for late cancellation or no-show.
Patients who are in need of hospitalization will be admitted to Northwest Hospital & Medical Center unless requested otherwise.
Labs and Other Tests
Billing for lab tests, radiology and EEG’s are billed separately from your office visit. Typically you will receive a bill from UW Medicine Northwest Hospital or UW Medical Center or other outside laboratories for tests mentioned above.
