To the patients and families of Dr. Jones’ practice:
After almost three decades of serving the Wilmington area, I have decided to retire. I have watched many families unselfishly give their time to assist in caring for a loved one. It is time for me to do the same. I have chosen to close Coastal Neuropsychological Services rather than to sell it. For those of you who did not get your records before we closed the below information is intended to let you and your healthcare providers know how to get your records. I would like to thank each of you and your family/friends who have afforded me the opportunity and trust to be a part of your healthcare team.
Many of you picked up your reports from my office after getting notice of my retirement. Patients who came to a follow up appointment to review their test results were also given a “layman’s” summary of your results that we both signed. Now that I am retired, some of your options for getting your records include the following:
Many factors may determine who you see for any possible future neuropsychological or psychological evaluations. Your healthcare provider may have a specific neuropsychologist/psychologist who they would prefer that you see depending upon your medical condition or referral question. Insurance companies may dictate who you see if you are not able to pay for the services yourself (i.e., out-of-network benefits, etc.) or providers may not be taking new patients at that time. Thus, it is important that you consult with your provider for guidance regarding continuation of care.
I have also compiled a list of neuropsychologists who are in southeastern North Carolina who agreed to assist in the transfer of my patients’ care when possible. In addition to being in good standing in the field of neuropsychology at the time of my retirement, I have chosen them so that they span across the age groups of the people who I have seen (children through geriatrics), areas of expertise, geographical locations, etc. This is not an exhaustive list and is organized by areas closest to my Wilmington office. I am not affiliated with any of them or responsible for their services provided. They each wrote a short summary about themselves and their practices, with contact information/websites as listed below. Major universities such as Duke University, UNC, ECU, and Wake Forest University are also excellent places to seek neuropsychological services.
