Patients now have a new place to go after a Pismo Beach neurology office closed up shop.

Dignity Health has opened a new clinic at the Matthew Will Memorial Medical Center in Arroyo Grande to serve former CoastNeuro patients.

That office closed abruptly in early December after nine years in business. More than 5,000 patients were left without a doctor.

"The best thing that people need to understand is that we still have neurologists here in the community," said Dr. Scott Robertson, Pacific Central Coast Health Centers President/CEO. "Most of them are the same neurologists that have been caring for them and their families over the last decade so these services are still here, the physicians are still here, and from their point of view, other than the location, nothing should be any different."

The new clinic started seeing patients last Thursday.

We're told you can call the old CoastNeuro phone number to make an appointment.
