Why do I need a referral from a physician to be seen by a neurosurgeon?

  • A primary care physician or other referring physician will perform the appropriate evaluation and diagnostic tests to determine if a neurosurgeon can assist with your medical condition.

Do you charge for forms to be completed?

  •  Yes, we do charge for forms, however if you are having surgery one set of forms will be done at no cost.  We do request a 2 week turn around time, since Dr. Javed and his P.A. are in surgery most of the time and they are the only ones authorized to complete forms.
