ED WAIT TIME
When you need outpatient neurology services, we’re here to help
If you are experiencing chronic neurological symptoms and pain that have reduced your level of functioning, and are seeking intervention from a qualified specialist, Neurosurgical Specialty Services at Ellenville Regional Hospital (ERH) offers highly skilled evaluation and treatment by Michael Stewart Hahn, M.D., P.C. Dr. Hahn, a highly qualified neurosurgeon, sees patients onsite at the ERH Specialty Services Department and performs outpatient surgeries and procedures to alleviate and treat many common neurological conditions. ERH offers a holistic approach to treatment that does not rely solely on medications to alleviate, improve or cure symptoms. Following proper diagnosis, our outpatient programming emphasizes surgical interventions, injections, procedures and complementary rehabilitation sessions.
For convenience, you can participate in physical therapy (speech/language and/or occupational therapy sessions) and have new MRI studies, CT scans, x-rays and ultrasound tests done right here, on site. We work with people of all ages, and tailor treatments to your individual needs and physical condition. Your caregivers and family members are welcome to attend sessions, as they may play a vital role in helping you to practice skills at home.

Patients may be seen on a walk-in or referral basis, and the first step in diagnosing a problem is a physical examination and a comprehensive medical history. Your examination will include a discussion with Dr. Hahn about your symptoms and concerns, and further testing – such as MRI, x-rays, CT Scans and ultrasounds – will be done as needed. If Dr. Hahn determines that outpatient neurological surgery is right for you, scheduling is flexible.
