Specialty referrals must be ordered by a medical provider. The provider must be listed on your insurance card if the referral is to be valid with your insurance company. Please call our office AFTER you have scheduled an appointment with the specialist that our provider recommended. Please allow a minimum of 2-3 business days for us to complete a referral. Please do not see a specialist without a referral and be advised that the insurance company does not allow us to authorize a retroactive referral.
