If you and your physician think you need to see a specialist or subspecialist, your physician will help you make this decision during the course of your visit. If your physician determines a referral is warranted our office will be happy to coordinate the referral appointment on your behalf.

Many insurance companies require insurance authorization prior to the patient being referred to a specialist. It is the patient’s responsibility to inform our front office staff if your insurance requires an authorization. It takes at least seventy- two (72) hours to process an insurance referral and your appointment with a specialist will not be covered until the authorization is obtained. We cannot do retro referral authorizations, so seeing a specialist without first obtaining insurance authorization could result in out of pocket expense to the patient.
