FAQs

Q?What tests are done at the Neurology Center offices?
A.

Please visit our services page  or in-office testing page to get a full list of services and tests offered

Q?Why are some patients taken back to the examination area first when I have been waiting longer?
A.

Each physician has a unique schedule based on his/her needs.  In addition, some patients are waiting to have testing done which runs on a separate schedule , or earlier patients have been late, which impacts the best intentions of our offices.

Q?How do I obtain prescription refills?
A.

We prefer to avoid refilling prescriptions between routine follow up office visits. Please review your medications prior to your scheduled visit to see what needs refilling so you can tell the doctor.  It is your obligation to be seen as recommended by your physicians so that your medications can be monitored. In the event you do need to refill your medication between visits, you or your pharmacy can contact us at Somerset (732) 246-1311, Monroe (609) 395-7615 or Princeton (609) 497-0300 .  To avoid errors, please have the following information available: The name of the medication, the pill strength, the dose schedule you follow, and the pharmacy name, store number/address, and phone number. Without this information, we will not be able to refill your prescription. If you have a mail-order pharmacy, we can mail your written prescription to you if you send a written request and a self addressed stamped envelope, or you can pick up the written prescription at our office.

Q?What if I have a medical issue or a prescription refill and my Neurologist is out of the office?
A.

During business hours, other physicians in the office cover for those physicians who are out of the office. After hours, one of our physicians are on call and will be available on an emergency basis.

Q?What if I have to speak with my Neurologist after hours or over a weekend/holiday?
A.

If this is a medical emergency, you should call 911 or go directly to the nearest emergency room for assistance.  The on-call doctor can be reached at 732-246-1311. Our answering service will take your message for the doctor.  For routine questions or prescription refills, call back during regular business hours.

Q?With which hospitals are The Neurology Center physicians affiliated?
A.

Saint Peters University Hospital

Q?Do you have a wait list?
A.

Yes, but being on the wait list will not necessarily guarantee an earlier appointment. When a slot opens up due to a cancellation, we contact patients on the wait list to see if they wish to move up their appointment to the earlier time slot.

Q?Why do you charge no show fees?
A.

Like many other professionals who set aside time by appointment, we charge no-show fees when an appointment slot is lost due to a patient failing to give timely notice to the practice about the need to cancel or reschedule their appointment. Given fair and reasonable advance notice, we can almost always fill the time slot for the physician with someone who needs to be seen.

Q?What if I have to cancel my appointment?
A.

We have a late cancellation/missed appointment policy.  If you have to cancel or re-schedule an appointment, you should call our main number (732-246-1311) during regular business hours and follow directions to our scheduling department. We ask that you give us a minimum of 24 hours or one business day notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.  Otherwise, you will be charged a $25 no-show fee, which is not covered by insurance.

Q?What is the education and training of the Neurologists in your practice?
A.

All of our Neurologists are board certified in Neurology. Please visit our providers page to acquire more information on our physicians.

Q?What will I have to pay at my first appointment? What form of payment do you accept?
A.

We collect all co-pays and outstanding deductibles at the time of service. If you have Medicare coverage, but no secondary coverage, we collect the 20% co-insurance at the time of service. We accept cash, checks (no second party checks) and credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.)

Q?Will you bill my insurance?
A.

Yes.

Q?What insurance plans do you take?
A.

For a full list of insurances or if you would like to call and find out either visit our insurers page or call (732) 246-1311 option 7.

Q?What do I need to bring on my first appointment?
A.

You should bring a photo ID, your current insurance membership card, a referral, or authorization number (if required for the visit), a current listing of medications, any current or relevant film/scans and their interpretation reports, as well as relevant prior medical/surgical records, if available.  If the chief complaint involves congnitive or memory issues, we advise you to be accompanied by a family member or caregiver who can assist the physician with background information on your condition.  You should plan on arriving 15 minutes ahead of the time. Also, complete paperwork to include a medical history form (including a complete list of your medicines), certain financial forms, and HIPAA paperwork.  You can find and print the new patient paper work here.

Q?What languages, other than English, are spoken within your practice?
A.

We have Spanish speaking clinical staff that are able to translate for our physicians.

Q?What information do I need to schedule my first appointment?
A.

You should have your referral (if your insurance requires one). Different services require different time slots or different professionals to provide the service. You will be asked the chief complaint or the reason for the visit as well as the name of your referring physician and your insurance information. You will need to provide us demographic information, such as name, address, social security number and a day time phone number where we can call you (or a care-giver) during the day time. If your treatment is related to an automobile accident, you will need to provide the name and address of the PIP carrier, the claim number, the date of accident, and the claims adjustor’s name and phone number.

Q?Should I come early to my scheduled appointment time?
A.

Yes. To ensure that you are seen at the time of your appointment, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time, regardless of new or follow up patient or in-house testing.
