Traveling to Mayo MN from Colorado: First Neurology Appointment
I completed my intake survey and found out that I can be seen in Neurology for chronic migraine. I’ve had migraines for 6 years and can’t find a doctor locally (or in Seattle where I used to live) that can find the cause. I’m looking to travel to Rochester in Jan or Feb…but I don’t really know what the next steps are.
Neurology wanted to schedule an appointment, but shouldn’t I schedule more than just 1? I don’t want to get there and just have an hour with the doctor and no follow ups scheduled such as MRI and blood work. Also originally I stated that we need to work in conjunction with the Women’s Clinic because there is a hormonal component to my migraines. So, how do I get those appointments scheduled? I just feel like I don’t know what to do next and don’t want to book a flight and hotel for a week when I only have talked to the receptionist and have one appointment scheduled. Is there a Patient Care Specialist or team that makes this all work?
I also have lab work from several doctors as well as 2 MRIs that I want sent to Mayo. Not sure how to do that.
