Ask a Neurologist. Get Answers to Your Neurology Questions.
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
did you see the neurosurgeon already?
why can't they do the surgery to remove it for you?
is the growth hard or soft?
you may have to find another plastic surgeon or neurosurgeon to do the procedure.
if your health insurance plan doesn't need a referral for you, you should just call up a neurosurgeon office to make an appointment.
do you need help to find a neurosurgeon close to you?
the neurosurgery office is most likely used to other insurance plans which say they need a referral
you haven't been seen in this neurosurgery office, so most likely they don't know the type of health insurance plan you have.
so get a referral from your primary care doctor or your general surgeon to get you into their office
and once you get in to see them, they can scan your insurance information and figure out you didn't need a referral.
let me know if you have other questions.
