How to Refer a Client

Appointments are scheduled Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Additional appointment scheduling can be requested from the clinicians in the specialty area. It is preferable that you call prior to scheduling an appointment so that you may visit directly with the clinician receiving the case. If available, please send a pertinent summary of the patient history, results of recent lab work and radiographs. Lab work and radiographs may be repeated if clinician of record feels it would be best for the patient's diagnostic and treatment plan.
