Medical Consultations & Referrals in Grand Rapids
Once you begin therapy, you may become more aware of physical ailments. We can help with a medical consultation or referral to a variety of health care professionals to help you remedy whatever ails you. For example, we medically refer clients to a neurologist in some cases. Neurological assessments are performed in a medical setting and can help determine sensory and motor impairments. A neurological assessment may be medically requested as a screening tool for those at risk of neurological abnormalities, such as Parkinson’s disease. A neurologist can help those who have suffered a stroke, a brain tumor, or seizures. They can also help patients with epilepsy or a diagnosis of dementia as well if needed.
