Northwest Neurology also recognizes that often patients need more than what the best medicine can provide. Better health often comes with lifestyle choices, nutrition and also a focus on wellness. We are now scheduling onsite appointments with Lesli Bitel-Koskela, an experienced Certified Patient Coach and Nutritionist. Many conditions including migraine, MS, neuropathy, stroke, dementia and others may be impacted by dietary and lifestyle factors. Nutritonal treatment and patient coaching can assist with management of these disorders and lead to better health. We are also scheduling onsite appointments with Lorena Nehring, an experienced Wellness Coordinator. Lorena has a nursing background and has worked as a care coordinator as well. She is available for scheduled meetings with patients and families. She performs an assessment, and works to connect patients with available services in the community. The goal is to achieve greater functional ability and better health by utilizing all available services including legal, social or other assistance when needed.
