Dr Brims :

I am sorry to hear about this problem

Dr Brims :

What type of doctor have you seen for this?

Customer: We have seen orthopedic and a neurosurgeon ...
Customer: He is one of the top neurosurgeons in this state ... But says there is nothing we can do until there is loss of bodily functions ... Said he could possibly paralyze him in order to correct him ... Just wondering if there is anyone in the country that' specializes in cervical scolosis
Customer: If this is all u have to say ... Or ask what type if doctor we have been to... This site is a royal joke!

Hello,

I'm Camille, and I’m a moderator for this topic. I sent your requested professional a message to follow up with you here, when they are back online. Unfortunately I do not know when this may be, as the professionals come on line as they are available. You don't have to stand by, you will get an email telling you when you have received a response. If I can help further, please let me know. Thank you for your continued patience.

Best,

Camille

Thank you... Do I need a referral ? How long will it take for an appointment? Would he review info before we come? Thank you again
You do not need a referral, but it would speed things up if you had one, I cannot tell you how long it will take for get an appointment, he will review your files before you go if you are referred there
