  • Patients or practitioners can directly contact the program referral portal, staffed by Dr. Roberts or Dr. Bulsara.
  • If the brainstem issue is not related to the ear, nose, throat or a neurosurgical issue, triage to the appropriate service will be facilitated expediently.
  • A rapid timing for initial evaluation (within a week) will be offered in either neurosurgery or otolaryngology.
