How to Refer a Patient to RCSD
At RCSD we take great pride not only in providing the best possible care for your patients, we strive to provide that care as soon as possible in a convenient location. Most of our referring doctors have our physicians’ cell phone numbers, and are encouraged to call or text for urgent or emergency referrals, or for follow up on patients. We strongly believe that close communication between physicians helps to optimize patient care.
There are multiple ways to refer patients to the practice, and we encourage you to use the method that is easiest for you. All referrals end up at the same place, with our front desk.
- Perhaps the easiest method is to simply have the patient call our main number at 858-451-1911. One of our front desk staff will be happy to arrange an appointment and can ensure we participate with the insurance plan.
- We also have an online referral form below, which you can simply fill out and hit send. Online Referral Form
- You are also welcome to fax in a paper Consult Request Form to 858-210-6357 or email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. A downloadable PDF copy of the Consult Request Form is below, and we have sets of pre-printed forms that we can drop off at your office or mail to you. Download Consult Request Form (PDF)
After seeing the patient, the RCSD physician will communicate all of your findings and management strategies to you using eFax directly through our electronic medical record system.
In addition to Consult Request Forms, we have brochures, new patients packets, surgical information, and business cards available for you and your patients. If you are interested in receiving any of these resources, please send an e-mail to [email protected], and we will gladly mail them to you.
