Pre-screening

Some neurosurgeons require a referral from a physician. Whether or not you have received a referral, please contact the neurosurgeon’s office to learn what tests or information will be needed before your first appointment. In some instances, a recent (within the last three months) MRI of the involved area is required.

Insurance

Please contact your neurosurgeon’s office for insurances accepted.
