Is this appointment at Mayo? If yes, how long did you wait for the appointment?
I was just told there was a waiting list over a year long. I am rapidly declining and could be seriously crippled or dead by the time I see someone! The healthcare system is failing me.

@msg From my conversations with Birdman, he indicated his appointments were in his local area and not at Mayo. I did have spine surgery at Mayo, and at the time I inquired 5 years ago, I was told the wait for a neurosurgery consult was 3 months after sending in imaging for review. In my case, there was a cancellation and I was seen sooner. The wait for appointments will be different in different departments based on demand and availability with higher priority given to patients with more urgent medical needs as stated on the website. You can always call Mayo and ask the department that matches your needs for information on how to seek an appointment. Can you share more information about the health issues that concern you?

If you would like to seek help from Mayo Clinic, contact one of the appointment offices. The contact information for Minnesota, Arizona and Florida can be found here http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63
