Many medical insurance companies require written referrals from your primary care provider before they will cover services that cannot be provided in our office.  An appointment with your provider may first be required in order to evaluate whether a referral is needed. 

Except for medical emergencies, the insurers usually require the referral be done before the service is carried out.  They may not approve referrals written after the service was obtained.

All referrals in our office are transmitted electronically therefore eliminating a need to make a separate trip to pick up referral forms.

Contact our office to request a referral.  Messages may be also be left in our referral voice mailbox. Please allow 24 hours for processing refill requests. Please keep in mind an appointment may be necessary to determine need for a referral.

Medical Records Transfer

In order for us to transfer your medical records to another office, we need to have a Medical Records Release form signed and dated by you.  This allows you to specify to whom we are able to release your medical information and for us to protect your medical information under the HIPAA regulations.  Please allow ten (10) business days to process your request.  There may be a charge for copying medical records.  Please contact us for additional information.

We provide many services that might help our patients avoid long waits at the emergency room. We have space available every day for urgent problems.  Please call our office first prior to going to the emergency room or urgent care facility.

For truly urgent problems that arise when the office is closed and cannot wait until the office reopens, a provider is on call seven days a week, 24 hours a day and can be reached by calling the regular office phone number.  Please have your pharmacy’s telephone number available in case you require medication.
