If you've had a stroke, you should get a second opinion at Loyola
Dr. José Biller, chair of Neurology at Loyola and a renowned expert on stroke, talks about the importance of seeing a doctor after a stroke and of finding its causes. Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in the U.S.
Some signs of stroke include: a sudden, severe headache; weakness or numbness on one side of the body; trouble speaking; vertigo; dizziness; and double vision. These symptoms may only last about 15-20 minutes. But that doesn't mean the danger has gone away. Call 911 and get to the hospital immediately if you experience these symptoms.
If you've sought care after a stroke but wonder if further treatment would help, you should call Loyola's Second Opinion Stroke Clinic at (708) 216-2438.
