Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Saud Sadiq "Dr. Sadiq cares for his patients using our Center's philosophy and treatments, tailored to meet each individual's needs. The first time you meet your doctor, he will spend two hours with you. During this ASSESSMENT visit, he will listen to your history and symptoms and perform a full neurological examination. Your doctor may then decide to send you for additional diagnostic tests, if necessary, in order to complete your assessment. Shortly after that initial visit, you will return for a MANAGEMENT visit, in which your doctor will spend an hour and a half discussing a comprehensive plan for your care.  This approach is designed to ensure that our patients have ample time with the doctor to address every aspect of their disease right from the initial encounter. We strive for our patients to feel they have been given as much time and attention as they require and that they are able to establish a significant relationship with their physician as soon as possible."
