Dr. Stoffman continues to care for Canadian patients and our office routinely organizes same day diagnostic imaging (MRI or CT) with comprehensive neurosurgical evaluation. Following this expedited and thorough evaluation, a therapeutic plan is devised and then put into place. Most Canadian patients have come from Ontario and Quebec but all are welcome.
