Update as of March 5, 2020:
It is our understanding that at this time, FINS will not be in operation for the foreseeable future. Again, we are deeply disappointed by the impact this is having on the continuity of patient care and empathize with patients who are experiencing uncertainty and confusion during this time.
We encourage patients to contact their primary care provider or referring provider for resources on continued neurological care.
February 28, 2020:
In October of 2019, Central California Faculty Medical Group was informed by the physicians at University Neurology Associates that they would be ending their affiliation with the organization, and starting an independent private practice, Fresno Institute of Neurological Sciences (FINS).
We understood that this transition would not change the location, contact information and hours of operation for the providers, and we had hoped would have little impact on patient care. CCFMG worked closely with all interested parties to ensure this transition happened by March 1.
However, the providers of FINS have recently informed us that they may not be fully operational on March 1, as they originally intended. We are deeply disappointed that the delay in FINS opening will likely impact the continuity of patient care, and we empathize with patients and their families who are facing uncertainty and confusion during this transition.
We encourage patients to contact their referring provider about additional resources for continued care. For any patients who may be facing a medical emergency, please go to the nearest Emergency Room or call 9-1-1. Please continue to check back with us periodically, and we will provide updates as additional information.
