Sandhills Neurologists, P.A., is the home to the offices of Dr. Giridhar Chintalapudi, MD, FAASM (Dr. Chin) and Dr. Henry Tellez, M.D. We offer personalized care, quick and easy access, and state of the art testing and treatments for general neurology, neuromuscular conditions as well as sleep disorders. Our office offers fully functional, state-of-the-art sleep lab centers, nerve conduction study/electromyography labs and testing facilities. Their first accredited Sandhills Sleep Disorders Center opened in 2009 in the Pinehurst location. Since then, they added sleep centers at their Fuquay-Varina and Sanford offices.
As sole providers in the practice, Dr. Chintalapudi and Dr. Tellez oversee patient care, which is guided by a detailed assessment and comprehensive management plan. As a rule, Sandhills Neurologists patients do not have to endure excessive wait times for appointments. “We ensure patients wait no longer than a week or two before an appointment,” says Dr. Tellez. The physicians have even formatted their schedules to allow for same-day appointments, when necessary.
Patients also benefit from longer appointment times, which often include in–’depth patient education. “We take more time than average with our patients; we realize that patients come from long distances to seek our expertise and have a lot of unanswered questions. We also recognize that patient education is one of the key factors to improving compliance and outcomes,” says Dr. Chintalapudi. Dedication to quick access and personal care is extended to referring physicians, as well. Dr. Chintalapudi and Tellez make themselves accessible for physician consults, offer same–day patient appointments and deliver test results and evaluations within 24 hours (48 hours for sleep studies).
Sandhills Neurology is now licensed to provide CPAP and supplies for many of their sleep apnea patients. They are also one of only 2 practices accredited in nerve conduction in North Carolina. They are accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
Referring physicians are encouraged to fax or phone their referrals or have patients call the office to make an appointment. By offering fully comprehensive neurology services in a timely manner, Sandhills Neurologists serves as an effective and convenient extension of primary care practices.
