In addition to consultation, HNI physicians perform additional services.

 

DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES

These services are performed outside of the consultation appointment calendar, allowing for much more rapid scheduling and turnaround times for your testing needs.

 

EMG/NCV studies are performed Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at one of the two HNI offices. Turnaround time for reports is usually same day or next day.

 

EEG including sleep deprived, prolonged, ambulatory and video EEG services are performed daily at the Pasadena location. Turnaround time depends on the length of the study but is usually between one day and one week.

 

Polysomnography including CPAP/BiPAP titration, following multiple sleep latency tests, and actigraphy are done nightly except Sundays. Results are reported within one week. The sleep coordinator can facilitate all sleep patient aftercare including interactions with DME providers as needed. 

 

Intraoperative electrophysiologic monitoring is arranged with the hospitals and surgeons requiring the services.

THERAPEUTIC SERVICES

In office infusion services including steroids, chemotherapy, biologicals, and antibiotics.  Vagal nerve, subthalamic nucleus, and other neural stimulator programming, monitoring, and maintenance.
