I can't tell you how the Mayo satellite campus's work, but the main Mayo Complex in Rochester Minnesota, they will have a Doctor see you, and then he will do an initial assessment, and then set you up with various appointments and test over a period of days, it can extend out to as long as a week or two, then after you have done all the test and seen all the Doctors, you will see the Doctor that did the initial assessment, and he will go over all the findings and recommendations, and then let you know what they feel needs to be done and what course of action needs to be followed. I would think that the satellite campus's would follow pretty much the same guide lines, as they all come under the main Mayo authority in Rochester! My daughter is a Nurse there and I have been thru there. I would like to caution you as to not get your hopes up to high, they do have some excellent Doctors and supperb test facilities, but there are other places that have outstanding Doctors too!, and Mayos is not the end all final authority in all medical problems! So just keep that in mind, they might be able to help you, but then again they might not be able to solve your problems.
I do wish you well!
Good Luck to You
