Before You Go

Please read the following.

Our physicians will not see you as a new patient without medical records indicating why you are being seen. We don’t want to waste your time or your money by having you here and not being able to accomplish what you need.   Without information about why you have been referred, recent lab or diagnostic testing, decisions cannot be made. Please work with us on this very important item and make sure all of your information is here before you come in for an appointment.

  • If you are a Tricare patient, you will always need a referral to be seen. Please be sure there is a referral in place before coming to your appointment by calling your Primary physician.
  • If you are a Veteran, you will also need to have a referral to be seen. Please be sure that there is a referral in place before coming to your appointment.
  • If your insurance requires a referral to a specialist, and there is not one in place, you may be responsible for the bill.
