Information You Will Need To Bring With You
The Johns Hopkins Transverse Myelitis Center requests that you bring the following to your scheduled appointment:
- Original (or copies) of any MRIs of both the brain and spinal cord
- Any recent test results that have not already been sent to us — some examples may include Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) or Lumbar Puncture (spinal tap) results
- A list of medications you use, including doses, start date, ordering physician and reason for taking the medication
Two weeks before your appointment, you should receive a packet in the mail with the following forms. Please complete and bring them along with you as well:
- New patient questionnaire
If you do not receive this packet, please contact medical office coordinator at 410-502-7099, option 1.
Insurance Verification and Necessary Referrals
We strongly recommend that you contact your insurance company to verify your benefits. We suggest confirming coverage for radiology, lab work and other potential services, such as psychiatry and physical therapy, before your appointment date.
If your insurance company requires you to obtain a referral, please fax it to our medical office coordinator before your appointment at 410-630-7900, Attention: TM Center.
