Stroke Prevention Clinic

If you believe someone is having a stroke call 911 or your medical emergency number immediately!

Treatment can be more effective if given quickly. Every minute counts! Time is Brain

The Stroke Prevention Clinic is an outpatient clinic for individuals who have had signs and symptoms of a recent stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA), or who are at risk of having a stroke or TIA. A stroke, sometimes called a “brain attack,” occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted. When a stroke occurs, brain cells in the immediate area begin to die because they stop getting the oxygen and nutrients they need to function.

You need a referral by an emergency room doctor, your family doctor, or another medical/nursing specialist.  The Stroke Prevention Clinic provides early assessments and appropriate interventions; rapid access to diagnostic tests; education to patients and family members about the risk factors that can cause TIA/Stroke, and assists in development of prevention strategies. Care is based on specific needs.

At the clinic the patient will meet with a Nurse Clinician and a Doctor who specialize in TIA/stroke prevention and care. The patient will be referred to other health care professionals as needed and may have additional testing ordered by the Doctor.
