I was reading on the web site for Dr. Henderson's that his office prefers that physician's complete the referrals for new patients. Is that always the case or should I go ahead and send in my MRI's and information on my own?
My neurologist wanted to start in state referrals first. He talked about sending referrals out of state if we were not satisfied with the in state neurosurgeon, but didn't seem to feel it was necessary to do it at this point. The neurosurgeon in state, I'm positive, will not be a Chiari specialist. It is in Mortantown, WV. I'm afraid if I go to my regular physician now and ask him to make the referral to Dr. Henderson after my neurologist is already making a referral to a neurosurgeon in state he is not going to be willing to do it.
