How to Refer a Patient:

Our Rheumatology Department does not require a referral unless it is required by a patient’s specific insurance plan; however, we do request any background and pertinent office notes prior to the visit. This enables us to provide the most meaningful initial consultation possible. After the appointment, our assessment will be sent to your referring or primary care provider for inclusion in your record and any needed additional follow-up.

Ways to refer include:

  • Submitting an electronic referral via the Infina Network
  • Faxing a referral to 919-783-1441
  • Calling the office at 919-782-3456 with any questions regarding the referral process
