What should I do if I need to see a specialist?

The type of insurance you have determines how you can go about seeing a specialist. In most cases, insurance companies require you to see your primary care physician first. Your PCP then determines if your condition requires being seen by a specialist or if your condition can be treated at our clinic. Most insurance companies REQUIRE that you get this referral from your PCP. Please remember, IT IS THE PATIENT'S RESPONSIBILITY to understand their specific insurance policy and the requirements concerning a referral.
