Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Diagnostic Tests and Screenings for Headaches

When it comes to headaches, no two patients have the same combination of pain, impairment, triggers or severity, making diagnosis a critical first step in any approach to care.

At Atlantic Health System Neuroscience's Headache Center, we offer comprehensive evaluations with physicians from a wide variety of specialty areas, including neurology, clinical psychology, physiatry, pain management and integrative medicine. Our team analyzes each patient’s lifestyle, genetics, diet and triggers to diagnose the headache symptoms and create a customized treatment plan. Referrals for additional expert opinions and procedures will be provided as necessary.

When appropriate, our medical team may also recommend diagnostic imaging tests, such as magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography and angiography.
