Hi Sunny one of the nice things about
going to Mayo Clinic is you don't have to wait a long time to get test done. At least that is the way it was when I went to their main clinic in Rochester Minnesota! You seen your assigned doctor and they would then schedule you for all the tests they wanted done and the different clinics they wanted you to see. Usually it was all with in just a few days! No waiting weeks to get an MRI or to get into a certain clinic.
If your going to the main clinic in Minnesota it is really quite a place! Huge is an understatement! My daughter is a nurse up there at Mayo and it really is impressive! But like most places it has its good points and bad. One person might think it is the best medical institution there is, and yet another might think it is the worst!
It will be interesting to hear what you think about
it? I do hope things go well for you!
Oh one more thing, I would suggest that you bring copies of all your medical records and tests including your cervical spine, with you when you go there. Chances are they will want to review everything even though your just up there for you GI consult. And don't be surprised if they want to send you for a consult for those other problems. Not saying they will, but they did me when I went up there but that was many years ago! They really do a pretty thorough work up, of everything!
Good luck to you!
