MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Neuro Network Partners (NNP), a premier group of child neurologists and advanced care neurology providers with offices in Dade and Broward Counties, is joining with Miami-based First Choice Neurology, which has locations throughout South Florida and in the Tampa Bay area.
The combined organization becomes the largest private pediatric and adult neurology group in the United States with more than 80 neurologists and 120 support health care staff members. The practice operates out of 41 facilities in six Florida counties and offers coverage in 35 major hospitals.
NNP was founded in 1978 and offers specialized pediatric expertise in such fields as epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, neurocritical care, cerebral palsy, movement and neuromuscular disorders, headaches, autism and neurodevelopmental disorders, neurogenetics, attention and learning problems, sleep disorders, and advanced neurodiagnostic services. NNP neurologists and advanced care providers work as a team to provide quick access and comprehensive care to neonates, children and adolescents with problems affecting the brain.
First Choice Neurology, a Florida medical group of neurologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, neuropsychologists as well at occupational therapists (OTs) and physical therapists (PTs), began serving patients in 2004 in response to South Florida’s increasing need for high-quality neurology services. First Choice offers both diagnostic and physical rehabilitative services for patients with a wide variety of neurological conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, epilepsy, migraines, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, sleep disorders and strokes. Additional subspecialties include neuromuscular disorders, neuroophthalmology, pain management, neuropsychology, neuroradiology, physical medicine and rehabilitation.
“The mission of First Choice Neurology is to provide high quality, cost-effective neurology services to the communities we serve,” says Bruce Kohrman, MD, Chair, First Choice Board of Directors. “By combining our resources with NNP, we are now able to offer both adults and children these critical health care options.”
Roberto Tuchman, MD, NNP’s Managing Partner, adds, “We share the First Choice mission of providing strong patient-physician relationships that are so critical in neurology. Together we are able to serve children and families seeking neurological care throughout the lifespan, expand access to care and provide an even better service through our collective ability to support our neurologists and advanced care providers.”
