Our Process: Coordination With Your Treating Physician
Written permission must be obtained from your local physician to request a medical second opinion from Johns Hopkins Neurology & Neurosurgery Center. After completing required forms, you will mail us copies of pertinent medical records and diagnostic test results. A fee will be charged to a credit card prior to the records being reviewed. A formal letter containing the Johns Hopkins physician's assessment and recommendation(s) will be mailed or faxed to your local physician.
In accordance with state statutes, this service is not available for patients residing in:
- New York
- North Dakota
If you are a resident of one of these states and wish to have a second opinion from a Johns Hopkins neurologist or neurosurgeon, we are happy to assist you in making an appointment to be seen at one of our offices in the Baltimore metropolitan area. Please call 410-464-6555.
