Appointments at the INRConsultation and treatment are by appointment only. Phone consultations can be scheduled by calling the INR at +1 (561) 353-9707, Monday through Thursday, 9 AM to 5:30 PM, and Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM Eastern Time.
Referrals to the INRThe 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.
INR Scientific BackgroundIn 2010 Edward Tobinick M.D., Medical Director of the Institute of Neurological Recovery, made a stunning discovery: that the neurological status of patients following stroke or brain injury, even years after the acute event, may rapidly improve following the use of perispinal etanercept.
