VIRTUAL TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENTS NOW AVAILABLE
In attempts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, McGreevy NeuroHealth will be conducting all follow up appointments by utilizing a video communication platform. This is a FREE service that can be used with a computer, smartphone, or tablet with video and audio capabilities. This will allow our providers to continue providing care while reducing potential exposure to COVID-19. A member of our staff will reach out to you in order to provide the MEETING ID and PASSWORD needed for your appointment.
Below, you will find information on how to use this platform and the steps to take on different types of devices. If further assistance is needed, please contact Angie at (904)230-3006 ext. 112.

Dear Patients of McGreevy NeuroHealth,
First, I would like to thank you for the opportunity to care for your neurological and pain management needs. I consider myself privileged to be in this position.
Second, I want to wish you the safest possible course throughout the current COVID-19 pandemic. In response to the executive order from Governor DeSantis mandating that all elective procedures are prohibited until further notice, we have decided to temporarily close the office to work on other ways of providing care and treatment.
Beginning immediately, we are evaluating existing and new patient visit requests to coordinate a plan that will enable ongoing management of your conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please note that we can still provide and adjust prescriptions when necessary.
We realize your healthcare needs, thus we are working on a virtual way to provide continuity of care in the form of telemedicine during this interim. We are working hard to get this up and running as soon as possible, and will provide education in the form of tutorials. Please check your emails, phone messages and this website for further guidance over the next few days.
Last but not least, due to the expansive nature of this Public Health Emergency, we have taken the initiative to help protect you by ensuring employees of McGreevy NeuroHealth are tested and negative for COVID-19. This will be a process but we feel it is the responsible thing to do under these circumstances. We will monitor when it is safe to bring patients back to the office for follow-ups and treatments face-to-face.
We sincerely thank you for your patience during this difficult time that we are all facing together.
Yours in Health,
Kai McGreevy, MD

The Vision Disorders Program
Many are not aware that the nervous system is intimately involved in eye development before we are born. Our ability to process visual information requires that many structures are intact, including the retina, optic nerve, and visual pathways in the brain. Neurologists are trained to look into the eyes as a window into the brain. At McGreevy NeuroHealth, we understand how visual disorders may impair patients, how various medical conditions can affect the eye, nerve and brain structures, how various medications used in Neurology can affect these structures, how viewing the retina can indicate signs of vascular disease in other parts of the body such as the brain and kidneys, how viewing the optic nerve can indicate if multiple sclerosis is present, or if a brain lesion such as a tumor is present.
At McGreevy NeuroHealth, we take the approach, if you don’t look, you don’t know. Our diagnostic prowess affects safe and effective treatment decisions. We aim to educate our patients, to have a broader view of disease and treatments, and ultimately to save lives. Our Vision Disorders Program is special, and helps us accomplish this. This unique program interplays with the following Centers and Programs:
