What is an Advanced Practice Provider?

An advanced practice provider is an important part of your care team at Dayton Center for Neurological Disorders. These providers work closely with your neurologist to ensure you get consistent and timely care. Patients will always initially see one of our neurologists. Once you have your diagnosis, your neurologist will recommend your follow up appointment be with either their physician assistant (PA) or nurse practitioner (NP). They will help manage your care, symptoms, and work with you to achieve that better quality of life.

These providers are all nationally certified, state licensed and specifically trained to care for and manage neurologic conditions. By seeing an advanced practice provider, you get your medical questions addressed quicker. These providers are fully capable of prescribing medications, answering medical questions, conducting exams, and performing several different procedures. 

Hear from a patient!

“The minute I entered the door at DCND, I felt welcomed and comforted. My care team has always been top notch. They listen and work with me to manage my condition!”
