Like many of our patients, you’ve probably been experiencing some form of numbness, tingling, weakness, or pain for a while. Now you have a chance to get answers and relief.
Preparing for your visit
We ask that you bring a list of your medications with you during your appointment, otherwise no significant preparation is required.
Please arrive to your appointment 10-15 minutes early, as there may be forms and/or questionnaires for you to complete.
You’ll be given a cloth gown to wear so we have better access to your arms and legs for the tests. If we are assessing your lower extremities, you are welcome to bring your own shorts. We recommend avoiding the use of lotions or oils on your limbs so that the electrodes stick during the nerve testing.
We have an automated reminder system that will call or text you a confirmation a few days before your appointment.
After your visit
Once we’re through, you’ll be able to carry on with your day however you like, whether that’s heading back to the office or off to the lake.
Dr. Inkpen will evaluate your results, send a consult note to your physician, and suggest a treatment plan. This may include splints, corticosteroid injections, or platelet rich plasma injections, all of which are offered at our clinic. He may also facilitate a referral to another physician, surgeon or for further imaging.
