We offer physical and emotional follow-up care for patients who have suffered a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). Follow up in the Stroke Clinic (located in the Neurology Clinic) is focused on a review of the findings of the stroke workup and, when needed, adjustments to the risk reduction plan as well as discussion of any problems or concerns.
