You need to get MRI’s and blood work pretty regularly. Your neurologist will want to review these at your 6 month or annual appointment. This means you will have to do the tests prior to your appointment. You can either;
- get the orders for the MRI and blood work at your appointment for the next appointment
- call your neuros office a month prior to your apt for the orders
Because my neuro wants the blood work done every three months I have the work orders. Then all I have to do is go to the phlebotomist, hand over the paperwork and get stuck. The MRI I call the neuros office for. Its pretty easy since I go to a clinic (Virginia Mason).
