If you think you may have ruptured a disc, we understand how frustrating—let alone painful—it can be waiting days or even weeks to see a physician.
At Dallas Neurosurgical & Spine (DNS), we're working to change that.
Whether you are suffering from disc injury or have another urgent need regarding your back or spine, DNS now offers greater access to appointments. Our first priority is to ensure that patients who need help quickly are seen by one of our specialists within 24 hours (or 36 hours depending on the time of your call). In some cases, one of our neurosurgeons may be able to see you the same day when you call before 10:30 a.m. If you call after 12 noon, we will do our best to offer you an appointment that same afternoon or during the next day (weekday).
Please be sure to call us first as we do not take walk-in visits. Be aware that you may have to wait for a short period if others are already scheduled. While we are committed to making every attempt to see patients with an urgent need within 24-36 hours, other emergencies or situations can arise. Your understanding is appreciated.
When you call, be prepared to provide your name, address, phone number and insurance information. We will also ask you about your symptoms so we can better prepare to treat your condition.
It all comes down to providing faster access to the patients who need us most.
