Before you have a neurosurgical consultation, you must be evaluated by your primary care physician (PCP). If your PCP thinks you need a neurosurgical consultation, they will typically order an imaging study—such as an MRI or a CT scan—to evaluate your problem. Your PCP will advise you to contact us and will fax a copy of the report from your imaging study to our office. We will review your clinical information and imaging studies to determine if you need to be seen by one of our doctors. We will then contact you to either schedule an appointment for you to come to our office, or we will advise you if you need additional conservative treatment prior to having a surgical consultation.
Bring your MRI or CT discs, your insurance card, a list of medications you are taking along with dosages, a completed Medical History (link to form) and Registration Form (link to form). You will need to pay your copay at the time of your visit. To make your visit as effective as possible, we recommend that you write down your questions in advance and prepare a detailed description of your symptoms. Make sure that your PCP has sent all of your test results and reports prior to your visit and bring a family member or friend if you need help understanding or remembering the information you will receive during your visit. Taking notes while you are with your doctor will also help you remember key information.
Please request all prescriptions and authorizations for renewals Monday-Friday between 9 AM – 4 PM.
