Stroke Care

Strokes are the leading cause of disability in the United States, one occurring every 40 seconds, and taking a life approximately every four minutes. There are treatments that we can give to reverse the damage of stroke but these medications can only be given within a small time window of the beginning of symptoms. The sooner we can care for you after a stroke, the better your outcome will be. Whether you need stroke care now or stroke rehabilitation services,we can help. Neurologist, Vesselina Mateva, M.D. will diagnose and look at causes, symptoms and treatments of common neurological disorders.
