Dear Dr ____________:

I am a neurosurgeon in your community. I am a member of the American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP), a national organization of neurosurgeons and chiropractic physicians committed to conservative and cooperative spinecare. I greatly appreciate the role of the chiropractic physician in spinecare.

I have a large surgical spinecare practice and frequently refer patients who are good candidates for non-operative care for chiropractic consultation. I would like to refer my patients to a chiropractic physician who I have open communication with. You have a good reputation, therefore, I would appreciate the opportunity to meet you and discuss the option of referring patients to you. I will also share what I offer in terms of neurosurgical spinecare.

I think you would enjoy being a member of the AASP. I encourage you to visit the AASP website at

I will call you next week to see if we can set up a time to meet, perhaps over lunch or dinner.
