In the event that your child needs the services of a specialist, please call our office at least 72 hours ahead of time so that a referral can be completed if required by your insurance. Many insurance companies will not allow back dated referrals. If the insurance company does not receive the primary care provider’s referral in advance, they may deny the visit or pay the specialist at a lower rate. Please have your insurance card available for reference when you call.

You can save time and frustration by placing your referral request electronically. Visit our ESD Patient Portal page to take advantage of this feature.
