Stroke: Treatment Services

Symptoms of a stroke occur suddenly. They differ depending on the part of the brain affected. Also, multiple symptoms can happen at the same time. If you notice any of the symptoms below, call emergency help right away. Getting help immediately is important, because brain tissue dies quickly when deprived of oxygen.

  • Sudden weakness or numbness of face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion
  • Sudden trouble speaking or understanding
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden dizziness, trouble walking, loss of balance, or coordination
  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause


The Doctors Hospital at Renaissance Emergency Department and the Primary Stroke Center team are in constant communication throughout the care of the stroke patient—from the time the patient is brought through the doors, to the neurological exams, and continues when the patient is admitted into one of the designated stroke units. Doctors Hospital at Renaissance employs a group of medical professionals who specialize in stroke, work together to diagnose, treat, and provide early rehabilitation to stroke patients.

For more information about the Doctors Hospital at Renaissance Primary Stroke Center, please contact Stroke Coordinator, Irene Ochoa-Lares, RN at 956-362-6297 or by email.
