Referral Policy

Many insurance plans require referrals which need to be obtained prior to any visit with a specialist. Referrals will be mailed to the patient or can be picked up from the office. Except in a medical emergency, we will not fax referrals. Referrals cannot be back-dated, as this violates the agreement that has been made with your insurance company. We are not responsible if your specialist allows you to see them without the proper referral. Except in the case of an emergency, we will require 48 hours notice to process your referral. You may also request and receive referrals via the patient portal.

Referrals that are requested for pick-up will be ready in 48 hours, please be prepared to show identification.
