Stroke Director for Marin General

Marin General Hospital is one of the main stroke centers in Marin county. We have a very aging population with stroke risk factors. We are diamond certified for our care of patients admitted to MGH. We take care of acute stroke patients by giving them TPA, admitting them for the full work up by doing MRI, echo and risk management. Then we refer them to rehab hospitals and follow up after their discharges till their fulll recovery. We have a close relationship with paramedic services, stroke awareness centers and provide all the information to our patients before they get discharged.

Dr. Cokgor became the stroke director in MGH as of May 2017. She oversees ER, hospitalists, Neurologists, physical, occupational therapy and speech therapy services. She is responsible for the timeliness and the availability of offering every cutting edge therapy to our patients. When needed we transfer patients to university hospitals for thrombus retraction. We educate patients' families about care and symptoms. We have very trained nurses, doctors and therapists in MGH to provide all the needs for stroke patients and families.
