Your First Appointment at GBNA
Simply give the Greater Baltimore Neurosurgical Associates' Baltimore, Maryland, office a call at 443-849-4270 or request an appointment via our secure online form.
Keep these items in mind when making an appointment:
Please be sure to mention if you are being seen as a Worker's Compensation Patient or if you were injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident. Specific paperwork is required which may delay your care if not properly obtained.
Please bring your most recent X-Rays, CT Scans or MRIs and the typed report. We request that you bring films-- not a CD of your images.
Please inform our staff of your insurance plan when you call. If your insurance plan requires that you have a referral, please contact your primary care doctor's office to obtain one. Our staff will assist you in determining whether or not you need a referral. We are required to collect co-pays at the time of your visit.
We ask that you fill out a new patient registration form, or confirm your existing information if you have been to our center before. You may bring someone with you into our exam room. Our nursing staff will escort you and your family member or visitor back to our comfortable examination rooms. We will conduct a thorough evaluation of your condition. At the end of your evaluation, our physicians will discuss the cause of your distress and review treatment options as well as help you understand why you are experiencing the pain or symptoms you have.
After your visit, our staff will ensure that you are scheduled for follow up appointments, pain management, further x-ray evaluation or physical therapy. If you require back or spine surgery, we always look first to procedures that are minimally invasive. We understand that during your visit with us, you will have questions. We will answer them fully and respectfully.
Print out the necessary form, fill it out and bring it with you to your first visit.
