Central Nervous System (CNS) Disorders Clinic at the Lake City VAMC
Our Mission:

To give the best care to veterans with central nervous system (CNS) disorders. CNS disorders include Parkinson's Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Huntington's disease, and Alzheimer's disease.


Our Purpose:

To provide care for veterans with CNS disorders at one facility during one visit.


Our Goal:

To improve the quality of health services for veterans with CNS disorders. Our CNS Clinic combines rehabilitation services with state-of-the-art medical care. Our team includes doctors (neurologists and internists), skilled nurses and nurse practitioners, physical therapists, speech pathologists, psychologists, social workers and dietitians. You and your caregiver are also important members of our health care team.


How can you become a patient in the CNS Disease Clinic?

Ask your current Primary Care Provider for a referral.


Your visit:

Your visit with us may take some time. You may be seen by several members of our health care team. Because we serve so many veterans, you may need to come prepared for a long wait. Giving you high quality care is well worth the time it takes.


We may prescribe some drugs for you. We may do certain procedures and tests.
Please bring a list of your medications with you. If this is your first visit, be sure to bring all your medical records with you. If you have radiology reports (like MRI results) from non-VA doctors and private hospitals, bring those as well.
Be sure to let us know if you are traveling by DAV van or other shuttle services.
