About the Institute

The Institute of Neurological Recovery® (INR®) provides medical services to selected patients with selected unmet medical needs. The scientific rationale underlying some of the medical services provided at the INR is discussed here. Please see the Terms of Use for this website.

Appointments at the INR

Consultation and treatment are by appointment only.  Phone or in-office consultations can be scheduled by calling the INR at +1 (561) 353-9707, Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 6 PM Eastern Time.

Referrals to the INR

The INR welcomes referrals from neurologists, geriatricians, internists, family physicians, other health care providers, or family members of patients with selected neuroinflammatory disorders. Please note: INR medical providers utilize etanercept for a limited number of off-label indications. INR medical providers do not use etanercept for treating Parkinson’s disease, brain tumor, or carpal tunnel syndrome. Individual treatment recommendations are only made following medical evaluation, including history, physical examination, and review of imaging studies.

The INR welcomes telephone inquiries from physicians and family members. In particular, the INR encourages telephone inquiry and discussion with an INR medical provider for those patients referred from locations at a geographic distance from Boca Raton, Florida, prior to appointment scheduling. This is recommended especially for those patients who will be flying across country or from overseas for treatment at the INR, due to the special nature of the services provided at the INR, and the unique experience which the INR has performing anti-TNF treatment for neurological disorders.
