IF YOU NEED A REFERRAL

If your child needs a referral for more specialized care, don’t worry! We can help! We are proud of providing comprehensive care to our patients but there are times when it is necessary to refer to specialists for further evaluation and treatment.

Many insurers require the primary care physician to authorize referrals to specialists. We will provide referrals to physicians participating in your insurance plan after evaluating the clinical complaint.

When a referral is required, we request at least 48 hours to process the request. We cannot give retroactive referrals for consultations not initially recommended by one of our pediatricians.
