How to Refer Patients

University Neurosurgery understands the importance of the bond between a referring physician and his patient.

If your patient is referred to one of our clinics for care, it is our promise that each step of treatment will be communicated to you and the patient will be returned to your care just as soon as is appropriate. Providing the best possible care for all patients is our first priority.
