Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIA) Screening Clinic

If you think you're having a stroke, call 911 to take you directly to the Emergency Deparment.

People who have had transient ischemic attacks are at high risk for stroke and can benefit from quick access to neurological evaluation. Our outpatient-based clinic is designed to meet the needs of those who have a suspected transient ischemic attack.

Patients receive a specialized assessment and comprehensive care plan to potentially prevent a future stroke shortly after their TIA diagnosis. The end goal of our interdisciplinary team of caregivers is to prevent a future stroke, avoid readmission and achieve a better quality of life.

The clinic offers

  • Rapid assessment and preventative counseling
  • Convenient, consolidated services in a clinic setting
  • Enhanced quality for the continuum of care

What to expect

  • The assessment begins with a thorough history and physical performed by a neurology-trained nurse practitioner.
  • Further testing including MRI, MRA, CT, CTA, carotid ultrasound, echocardiogram and labs are ordered as appropriate.
  • Clinical assessment and same-day testing is performed whenever possible.
  • After testing is complete, you will receive a consultation with a neurologist.
  • Clear and concise recommendations or a treatment plan will be discussed with you as well as sent to your PCP.
  • The clinic is once a week. Patients are referred by their PCPs or after a visit in the Emergency Department, if the ED physician deems it appropriate.
