Complex neurological consultations
Some neurological problems are highly complex and require extra time and care coordination. Typically, patients with these complex neurological problems have already been evaluated by at least one other neurologist and/or neurosurgeon. Patients and, often, their families seek Dr. Frank when they realize that they need complex neurological consultation. They need an experienced neurologist who is willing to spend more time to better understand the problem and provide thoughtful guidance. One who can tailor the approach to their unique situation and needs. Primary doctors often refer such patients to Dr. Frank when they appreciate that the problem complexity requires a special approach.
The YouFirstNeuro Difference
Neurologists in academic practice sometimes provide this type of service. Unfortunately, the allocated time is often inadequate to fully address all the patient’s relevant issues. Also, the consultations in an academic setting often involve many mid level providers and trainees who separate the patient from the experienced neurologist whose opinion they seek.

“When I was diagnosed to have a brain aneurysm, I was referred to Dr. Frank by physician friends who are aware of his unique expertise and thorough approach. We were not disappointed. After seeing several neurologists and neurosurgeons, it was clear that Dr. Frank is in a league all his own. I was so impressed when we met him for the first time. He had thoroughly reviewed all the records and had called some of the physicians to make sure he fully understood what had been done and what was being advised. He listened carefully tome and did a more thorough examination than any doctor I have ever met. His advice was sound, and his explanation was so clear. Suffice it to say, I quickly trusted Dr. Frank completely. Since then, he has been available and present in a way that has truly helped me make the best decisions for me as a person, mainly involving monitoring and avoiding surgery. I am so pleased with this approach. Other doctors pushed me to have surgery, and Dr. Frank was the first doctor who really listened to me and shared important facts that helped me feel that is was okay to choose a different management approach.”
