Comprehensive, Trusted Neuro Care
A Multidisciplinary ApproachAt Wellstar, we see over 680,000 emergency neuro patients each year, each with unique needs and challenges. Management of challenging neurological cases takes the know-how of physicians from many areas of medicine. Working together, we can create a treatment plan that addresses every aspect of your health. Wellstar and Mayo Clinic are working together to improve the delivery of healthcare. Through our collaboration, Wellstar combines the wisdom of Mayo with the expertise of Wellstar to offer the best care and treatment plans for even the most complicated diagnoses. As part of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, physicians at Wellstar can request consults with Mayo Clinic specialists on complex cases at any time. The best part? This service is offered at no cost to our patients.
Fast Track from the Emergency Room to Specialized CareYou may have heard that, in a stroke situation, “time is brain.” When you come to Wellstar Atlanta Medical Center for emergency stroke care, you’ll meet with an ER doctor within minutes of arriving. At all Wellstar locations, your advanced brain scan can be shared across the Wellstar Health System to aid in receiving additional consults fast from our colleagues, when needed.
When Strokes Happen, BE FASTStrokes, though potentially life-threatening, can be survived. Getting help quickly can make all the difference. When you or a loved one experiences a stroke, call 911 right away. To help people remember how to respond when a stroke occurs, the American Stroke Association uses the letters B.E. F.A.S.T. as a memory aid about the signs of a stroke:
- Balance: Is the person dizzy or having trouble keeping their balance?
- Eyes: Is the person experiencing blurred vision or vision loss?
- Face: Is one side of the person’s face drooping? Are they able to smile?
- Arms: Are one or both arms weak? Are they drifting downward? Is the person able to raise both of their arms?
- Speech: Is the person’s speech strange or slurred? Can they repeat simple phrases?
- Time: Track the time the symptoms began and call 911.
