Referring Physicians

Rheumatology Associates, PLLC, welcomes the privilege of working with you to take care of your patients with rheumatic diseases. We see patients only by referral from other health care practitioners. Our goal is to provide state of the art care in a compassionate environment, while providing the referring practitioners timely consultations with precise communication. We welcome your calls for curbside questions and our office will do our best to accommodate your patients in an efficient manner. Thank you for entrusting us with the care of your patients.

When Referring A Patient

Include all supporting information that pertains to the diagnosis. Keep in mind if the patient has seen a rheumatologist or dermatologist in the past, we must have those records.

Fax referral form and all records to (502) 897-1792.

Once Patient Information Is Received

When we receive all information required for a referral, we will then:

  • Verify insurance
  • Have the records reviewed by a physician
  • Contact your patient within 2 weeks. Please advise your patient that we do ask for a credit card to secure their appointment. (If patient cancels within 48 hours, there will be a charge.)
  • Notify you via fax regarding the patient’s appointment date and time

If you have any questions regarding your referral, please call the scheduling department at (502) 893-3963, ext. 1126. To expedite your referral please be sure to send all pertinent data on the patient. Thank you again for your referral.
