    Nearly 80% of our spine patients are able to recover with nonsurgical treatment. With Priority Consult, our surgeons provide a rapid initial review of your medical condition without an appointment. Here’s how it works:

    1. Call our Initial Care Department at 513-221-1100 or 800-325-7787 to get registered.
    2. You will be asked some questions so that we can better guide your care.
    3. In addition, you may be asked to provide your complete medical history.
    4. We will ask you to provide recent x-rays, MRI/CT scans, or other related test results. Depending on where the testing was done, we may be able to access it digitally. Otherwise, we may ask you to deliver or mail it to us.
    5. Once we have all of your diagnostic test results, the surgeon will review your medical information, and we will call you with a recommendation.

    You may be scheduled for an immediate appointment if your condition is urgent. However, many patients benefit from additional nonsurgical treatment and testing prior to an appointment with a surgeon. The surgeon may recommend that you see one of our rehabilitation physicians, receive physical therapy from our network of therapists, or schedule additional testing such as an MRI.

    If the physician recommends treatment prior to an appointment, a Care Coordinator will call you to help coordinate your treatment and answer any questions you may have. We will maintain communication with you and your referring physician throughout your care experience to ensure your total satisfaction with Mayfield.
