For Medical Professionals

Referral Procedure

Treatment is available to all patients by physician referral only. The referring physician should complete the Physician Referral Form and send this form to the clinic along with any pertinent medical records for referral. Our physicians will review the completed form and the provided medical information to determine if the patient will benefit from our services. If appropriate, the patient will be contacted by our staff to schedule an appointment. If we feel that we have nothing to offer, we will contact your physician directly.
