How do you refer a patient?

We have created a dedicated Referring Doctor Hotline and Referring Doctor fax line to assist you. When calling, all our staff needs is the patient’s name, contact number, the type of evaluation, the doctor you’d like them to see and how soon.We will take care of the rest! We will call your patient that day and notify you of the appointment time. If faxing is easier, simply fill out the referral sheet and fax along to our Referring Doctor fax line. Again, we will notify you of your patient’s appointment date.
