Patients who are members of an HMO or PPO must obtain approval from their primary care physician before seeing a specialist. An advanced notice of 72 hours is required for approval, except for emergency room visits. This allows us time to verify and submit the necessary documentation. Please note that if you arrive to the specialist without the necessary authorization you may be asked to reschedule and/or pay for the visit.
Any new patient must be seen in our office before a referral can be made.
Please contact our office at least 72 hours in advance of your specialist appointment and provide us with the specialists name and the date and time of your appointment.
If our office has scheduled a specialist appointment for you, we will also process the insurance referral. You are always welcome to contact our office to ensure that your referral and insurance authorization have been processed.
If you need assistance scheduling an appointment or would like to know which specialists we recommend, please feel free to contact our office to speak with our referral specialist.
