If you require a referral for a service at another facility, please allow at least one week for our medical assistants to complete the necessary paperwork and/or input the information into the computer. It may take several days for us to get an approval from your insurance for the service. Please do not go to see a specialist unless you have your referral in hand. If the parent/guardian chooses to take the patient to undergo any service without a valid referral, the parent/guardian is financially responsible for the full charges.
