Dear Patient / Colleague;
We are extremely sorry to announce the closing of the NeurExpand Brain Center. We will be keeping our Columbia clinic open until April 10, 2015 to allow any patients wishing to continue their treatment to do so.
This unexpected closure is in part due to the fact that last September Medicare determined they would no longer pay for the treatment interventions in our Brain Fitness Program. Since a considerable amount of our funding was from Medicare, this decision had a major impact on our practice. Nevertheless, we did our best to continue to keep our doors open and provide services for our patients. Unfortunately, after enduring much financial hardship, we have finally reached a point that we need to cease our operations.
Needless to say, your health and medical concerns are critically important to us and we would like to make every effort to minimize any inconveniences for you or disruptions in your care. As such, we have provided a list of neurologists in our area and their subspecialties that may best fit your needs. We will be happy to transfer your medical records to one of these neurologists or any other physician you prefer. Please kindly complete the record transfer authorization form and indicate where you would like us to send your medical records by no later than April 3, 2015. If you would prefer, you can call in advance and pick up your medical record at the Columbia clinic on or before its closing date of April 10, 2015. We request that you give us 2 days advance notice by calling the office to provide us time to assemble your record to pick up. We will posting additional information shortly on how to obtain your records after April 3, 2015.
Please do not hesitate to call our office as well if you have additional questions or concerns. Our phone number is 443-842-6333.
We wish you the best and apologize for any inconvenience we have caused you by closing our doors.
Wishing you good health,
The NeurExpand Team
