Referrals


To schedule an appointment, call: 817.735.DOCS (3627) between 8 am and 5 pm, Monday through Friday. Or you may printout and complete our referral form and fax it to us at: 817.735.2673.  The Referring Physicians Service will help answer your questions and work to resolve any concerns you may have about our services.  Our goal is to provide physicians with prompt service and communication of complete results for the patients you refer to us. We will strive to meet your requirements and needs for following patients throughout their care and will preserve the integrity of your relationship with your patient. If you ever refer a patient and are not completely satisfied with how we have served you, please let us know.  Our clinic is closed on Saturdays, Sundays and most national holidays. However, physicians representing all medical sub-specialties are available for telephone consultation or referral 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year round.                       

Emergency appointments


Patients with urgent medical problems are given priority in our appointment system. Appointments are scheduled several days to several weeks in advance. We will, to the fullest extent of our resources, accept emergency cases on the same day. Patients requiring hospitalization may be referred to Plaza Medical Center of Fort Worth for evaluation. Patients not requiring hospitalization should be referred to the Internal Medicine Clinic for outpatient evaluation. In either case, please call in advance of the patient’s arrival.

We participate with most HMOs, PPOs, commercial plans, Medicaid, Medicare and CHAMPUS. As a courtesy, we file claims on behalf of the patient.
