In order to schedule an appointment at our office, you must have a referral from another doctor or the hospital emergency department. Although we recognize that this may be of some inconvenience to you as a patient, our goal is to avoid wasting your time and money.
Some patients who have a neurological problem are not surgical candidates, so a visit to a neurologist or other specialist first may save you time and money in the long run. Referring physicians are also able to order radiological tests such as MRIs that are often necessary to see a neurosurgeon. Having these done first will expedite your care and appointment time should you need to see a neurosurgeon. Once they have determined you need neurosurgical treatment, have their office call us to schedule your appointment and send us all your records.
Once the referral is received by our office, we will call you to schedule an appointment with either the doctor or his NP as quickly as possible.
Do you have spine or neck pain, but do not have a primary or family physician? You may visit our Walk-In Spine Center without a referral or appointment where our trained professional staff will see you and order any tests needed. Once evaluated, our physician in the Walk-In Spine Center can recommend any further treatment you may need from our other staff physicians. Call 601.579.4445 with any further questions.
