Physician referrals

To schedule an appointment with many of our specialties, a physician’s referral is required. Please contact your child’s pediatrician. Upon receiving an appropriate referral, the respective clinic or specialty staff will coordinate with the child’s parents forms that must be completed and returned.

To refer a patient, physicians should complete the new patient referral/consult fax form and the supplemental referral form and fax to 803-434-1920.
