Prepare for Your Visit

Before your first appointment, you will receive a new patient questionnaire in the mail, depending on your physician. Please fill it out in advance and bring it with you to your appointment. We also ask that you bring:

  • Any CT or MRI scans pertinent to your condition. Actual scans are best, as our doctors prefer to review them thoroughly; reports are often insufficient. These scans can be obtained from the imaging center and copied onto CDs. Please kindly ask the imaging center for a copy of your scans on a CD and bring it to your appointment. 
  • Any reports from of previous surgeries for the condition we are discussing with you, as well as any notes of previous evaluations for the condition.
  • For pediatric visits, it is important that both a parent (or legal guardian) and the child are present. 

For more information, contact your physician's care coordinator or call 203-785-2805 or email us at Neurosurgery@yale.edu.
