We offer 4 convenient ways to refer patients to our clinic:
We will make every effort to get your referral seen within 3 business days for urgent neurosurgery evaluations; 1–2 weeks for direct spinal injection referrals and 1 – 2 weeks for neurology referrals. Emergency referrals should be made by calling 501.400.3168.
DIRECT PROCEDURE REFERRALS
Please note that we accept direct referrals for interventional spinal procedures (Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections, Cervical Epidural Steroid Injections, Lumbar Facet Injections and Cervical Facet Injections). If you feel that your patient is unlikely to have a surgical spine condition but needs conservative care, please make a direct referral for the desired procedure. We will review the records and prepare the patient for the procedure over the phone. If conservative care fails for any reason we are happy to see your patient for a full comprehensive neurological evaluation.
