Dr. Geerling Says:

Dr. Geerling strives to give every new patient the attention and time needed to complete a thorough history and cognitive-neurologic examination. Patients in our clinic often suffer from attentional symptoms and memory disorders, and may arrive late or without important information. Some of our patient evaluations involve foreign language interpreters, who are scheduled weeks or months
