Becoming a Patient

Most of our patients are referred to us by one of their current physicians, usually their primary care doctor or gynecologist. We ask that all applicable records and test results be forwarded to us at the time that the appointment is requested.
 
After an initial appointment with one of our physicians, we will discuss our diagnosis and recommendations with your doctor(s). We will follow up with your referring doctor at every stage of your treatment. We encourage patients to continue their relationship with the referring physician.
 
We will coordinate and facilitate referrals for radiation therapy, second opinions or specialist consultations.
