Why do I need a physician referral?

The McConnell Center assists your physician by providing a multidisciplinary approach to health and wellness through specialty clinics staffed by professionals not available in all physician offices.

Although requirements by private insurance can vary case by case, many insurance companies require referral to see a specialty clinic or physician. Even if your insurance provider does not require a referral, the McConnell Center does require a referral to ensure you are receiving proper health care through a coordinated effort with your primary care physician.

Our specialty clinics are staffed by:

  • Physicians specializing in cardiac care, musculoskeletal health, lipid (cholesterol) management and warfarin management
  • Experienced nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, exercise physiologists, stress management specialists and a clinical psychologist who support these specialty services
