Nearly 80% of our spine patients are able to recover with nonsurgical treatment. With Priority Consult®, our surgeons provide a rapid review of your medical condition within a few days ... not weeks.
How Priority Consult® works
Once we are contacted about your spine problem, we will call you to obtain a detailed medical history and collect recent x-rays, MRI, or other scans of your spine. The surgeon will review your medical information, and we will call you with a recommendation within a few days.
The surgeon may recommend an immediate appointment. However, many of our patients benefit from additional treatment and testing prior to a surgeon appointment. The surgeon may recommend that you see one of our rehabilitation physicians, receive physical therapy from one of our network therapists, or schedule additional testing such as an MRI.
Personalized coordination of your care.
If the neurosurgeon recommends treatment prior to an appointment, a Care Coordinator, who is a nurse with experience in assisting patients with spine pain, will call you with educational information and will help coordinate your treatment. We will maintain communication with you and your referring physician throughout your care experience to ensure your total satisfaction with Mayfield.
