TBSI Neurosurgery New Patients
Your initial appointment will be scheduled with your surgeon’s specific Physician Assistant. What is a PA? The PA serves as an extension of your surgeon, and in as much the PA will initiate the first office visit to gather medical history from you, evaluate the presentation of symptoms, and begin the preliminary efforts of diagnosing your specific condition. The PA will commence the process of determining your treatment pathway, order any studies if they are needed, and will then have you come back to see the physician. Each surgeon works in tandem with their respective PAs.
TBSI Neurosurgery Established Patients
Although you may have visited us in the past, we require that paperwork be updated regularly. If we have not seen you in the past twelve months, we will ask for you to complete the New Patient Packet again with updated information to provide the best care possible.
TBSI Neurosurgery Prescription Policy
Because our providers are often caring for patients outside the clinical office either in surgery or traveling to our outreach clinics, we require up to 3 business days notice to complete refill requests for prescriptions. YOU MUST CONTACT YOUR PHARMACY to initiate the process. Refills requests are honored throughout the business week, but will not be filled over the weekend or holidays.
Please note: Due to a change in the classification of certain medications by the federal government, effective October 6, 2014, TBSI Neurosurgery clinical patients will no longer be given prescriptions for Hydrocodone (in any and all combinations). These include:
