How to make appt to be seen in Epilepsy Center

Posted by Leonard @jakedduck1, Jun 9, 2019

I received this private message today and believe others are better able to answer it.

My fiance is requesting for appointment in Mayo Clinic (Minn.) but they sent him an email for him to choose appointment date he will be available depending on when their appointment calendar opens.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Epilepsy & Seizures Support Group.

Hi – thanks for posting this question, @jakedduck1. Sounds like in the case of this member indicating the patient can choose an appointment date he'll be available depending on when their appointment calendar opens, making this selection is the next step in the process outlined by the appointment experts.

For others interested in an appointment at Mayo Clinic for epilepsy, you can go to this link and then select the telephone or the online method to request an appointment http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63.

Thank you for your reply Lisa. This person is in Nigeria. Is there any procedures or requirements necessary for International patients?

Hi @jakedduck, thank you so much for posting this question here, thanks @Lisa for your contribution. The appointment has been confirmed and scheduled on August 26, 2019 at 8:00 AM, in the department of neurology. They sent him an email yesterday about the appointment confirmation.
Please I have a question to ask based on this.
For him to meet up with the appointment date, is it the hospital (Mayo clinic) that will offer him Visa letter or is he going to process it by himself?. Because if he process the Visa by himself, he may not be able to meet up with the appointment date.
Please I need your suggestion. What do you think he should do for him to meet up with the appointment date being August 26, 2019?. Thanks

Hi Julia,
I really don’t know. I’m not familiar with International travel.
Can you email Mayo Clinic? Maybe Lisa can answer your question or suggest who to contact. I don’t know anything about visas or passports.
Good luck,
Jake

Great, @chynex – glad your friend has a confirmed appointment and you're getting your questions answered.

Wondering how things are going with your friend's seizures in the meantime?

Thanks @Lisa for your concern. I just hope all will be fine soon. Since Mayo clinic has confirmed and scheduled his appointment date. At least I'm a little bit relieved now, because I was so worried about how our future is going to be with the seizure.
And I'm happy that I joined this wonderful group (Mayo Clinic Connect).
