YOUR FIRST VISIT
A Personal Approach
The very fact that you have been referred to a neurosurgeon suggests that you or your family may be under a great deal of stress. We understand that this is a difficult time, so when you visit our office we will make every effort to make your visit as comfortable as possible. In addition to providing the highest quality neurosurgical care possible, we also place a great deal of emphasis on education and information regarding your condition. We want you and your family to understand all aspects of your medical condition and the treatment process, so please feel free to ask questions of any member of our staff.
IT IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL that you bring the following information with you for your first appointment to ensure the most complete evaluation:
CT scans, angiograms, myelograms and any other X-rays from ALL physicians or other healthcare professionals you have seen regarding your problem. We need to see the ACTUAL PICTURES – not just the reports.
