Making a referral is EASY....

Referrals can be made directly by calling one of our Program's Enrollment Specialists at 832-476-3900 or by faxing us at 832-476-3990  

 

Or you can fax the appropriate insurance referral form to the patient’s insurance company. A case manager will coordinate with our office and we will contact your patient for their first visit. PCP's then receive a note from our Clinic Physician explaining the outcome of the first visit and the suggested plan of care.

 Referral requests are typically approved and the patient is enrolled in less than 24 hours.
