Island Hospital recommends preparing for your first neurology appointment by writing down your symptoms and duration, gathering your medical history (diagnoses, meds, surgeries), noting any family history of neurological conditions, and jotting down any questions you have for the doctor. If you have medical records or test results, bring them along.
