Some general questions from the public…
How do you get to see a neurologist?
Neurologists only see patients on referral from another specialist. Your doctor will determine if you could benefit from seeing a neurologist.
How long does it take to see a neurologist?
There are around 150 neurologists in BC. When a patient is referred, the neurologist will try to determine how urgent a problem is, and the schedule accordingly.
Also, waitlists depend on health region. There are only 10 active neurologists doing hospital call on the whole Vancouver Island…hence they may have a longer waiting list than possibly the mainland, for example.
