If you or a family member has a neurological problem such as multiple sclerosis (MS), a sleep disorder, migraine or other types of headache, memory loss, or back pain or neck pain, I hope you will consider Rowe Neurology Institute as your Neurological Specialty Home.
I founded the practice hoping to give patients the type of care I would want for myself – comprehensive neurological care in an outpatient setting that looks at the whole person and not just the disease. Everyone here at the RNI feels the same way. We see ourselves as a partners with our patients, not beholden to any bureaucratic or hospital system. Our patients have taught us much over the years, and we continue to learn from them. We hope we give them spiritually as much as their courage and strength give us.
We try to assess and improve the quality of life for every patient who comes through our doors. We do this through listening, examination, testing, and reassessing, always questioning the accuracy of diagnosis and the quality of our treatment plan.
We have top-notch neurological sub-specialists who treat patients in an out-patient setting, helping avoid un-necessary surgery and unwanted medication. We also conduct cutting-edge research. We understand the need for quick answers, so we make every attempt to schedule new patient appointments within 48 hours of first contact. We don’t offer “quick cures,” though, and we believe you should beware of those that do.
The institute features its own accredited testing centers and MRI center, which allow us to get quicker and more accurate results without the inflated costs and facility fees of hospital-based imaging centers. Visit our online MS, memory disorders, headache and sleep disorders centers.
We work with your primary care doctor to communicate and coordinate your care and keep them “in the loop,” whether they referred you to the institute or you come to us on your own. Our Electronic Medical Records System, having achieved Stage 2 Meaningful Use, and our versatile PACS for digital imaging management, makes all this possible.
Finally, we realize that basic research and clinical research go hand in hand to find new cures and treatments for neurological disease. Fortunately, we are able to do both. In our not-for-profit MidAmerica Neuroscience Research Foundation, clinicians and scientists work side by side to try to achieve a better quality of life for our patients.
All the Best,
Vernon Rowe, MD
