This is not a complete list of diagnoses or procedures. If you feel you have a
neurosurgical problem that we might be able to help, please have you physician
make a referral directly to us, with you MRI, CT or other reports, by fax to
904-276-5308.

Every effort will be made to evaluate all referrals quickly and see those
accepted patients as soon as possible. Please recognize that all referrals are
not accepted for evaluation, if they are not felt to be possible surgical
candidates. Nor do all patients require surgery, in fact most do not. More
