Telemedicine is live and serving the Hampshire Neurology patient needs during these extraordinary times of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have fully transitioned to HIPPA-compliant telemedicine visits.  Each patient is contacted the day before their appointment as reminder, and to tell them of telemedicine.  Patient is then called at the time of their appointment to connect them on telemedicine to Dr. Rossen.  All that is needed is either a cell phone or a computer with Internet connection.  Patients without home Internet are provided opportunity for telemedicine visits in our parking lot, where they are provided with a telemedicine ready portable computer supplied by Hampshire Neurology.

Neurological care remains a high priority during the Corona virus pandemic, as neurological disease that is suboptimally treated in the outpatient setting can significantly increase patient discomfort or worsening the course of neurological disease. 

Telemedicine allows Dr. Rossen and Hampshire Neurology to remain dedicated to the service of our patients without compromising their safety.
